The Challenge

COMAH Compliance & Regulations are a requirement for top tier and lower tier assets in the UK.  Facilities handling and storing large inventories of hazardous & explosive materials are required to manage the risks associated with these substances.  This covers a wide range of activities from Fire, Blast & Gas analysis, to Secondary and tertiary containment assessments & modelling.

COMAH compliance is necessary to remain within operating standards supplied in accordance with local HSE and Environmental Standards Agencies.

The Solution

IKM’s multidiscipline teams undertook work to collectively provide a systematic and detailed portfolio of services:
