Méthodes intégrées d’évaluation des risques et des menaces. Programmes européens SECURE SITE et IMPROVE

Abstract : Terrorist acts perpetrated in the United States and then in Europe led the European Commission to propose a European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) and a Critical Infrastructure Warning Information Network (CIWIN) in 2004. Consequently, the Commission proposes in the framework of a specific five-year programme the specific objectives and thematic priorities on security and the protection of critical infrastructures. The chemical sites were identified among critical infrastructures as hazardous substances are stored, produced and handled, which can lead to not only human and material damage but also to fear and loss of confidence within the public with regard to chemical industry. In this context that the SECURE-SITE (2006-2007), coordinated by INERIS and then IMPROVE (2008-2010), coordinated by the CEFIC were proposed. These projects gather several European partners (Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Italy and Czech Republic) from different background: public institutions, a professional federation, a university and the private sector. IMPROVE aims at providing a methodology for vulnerability analysis of chemical sites and integrating safety and security approaches, based on the results from the SECURE-SITE project and on the existing European regulations (like the Seveso II Directive). A review of the European regulations related to safety and security was performed across the Member States.
