Safety guidelines and good industry practices for Oil Terminals

The Safety Guidelines and Good Practices for Oil Terminals were developed within the framework of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) project on hazard and crisis management in the Danube Delta involving the Republic of Moldova, Romania and Ukraine under the auspices of the Assistance programme of the Industrial Accidents Convention. The Conference of the Parties to the Convention took note of the safety guidelines and good practices for oil terminals at its eighth session (Geneva, 3–5 December 2014) and recommended their use by ECE member countries. Authorities, oil terminal operators and the public are invited to apply these safety guidelines and good practices, which are intended to contribute to limiting the number of oil terminal accidents and the severity of their consequences for human health and the environment.
