Established in 2013, the COMAH Strategic Forum (CSF) is a high level joint chemical industry and regulator forum working to improve major accident hazard leadership, management and raise standards across the industry.  This joint forum provides industry and the Competent Authority (CA) with a means for strategic discussion on how they can work together to provide leadership and encourage continuous improvement in the inspection, management and control (including emergency preparedness and response) of major accident hazards across the onshore industries.  The forum partners engage collaboratively to identify and share best practice and where necessary to commission the development of new guidance.

NOTE: whilst these documents are written for the COMAH sector, they may also provide a useful reference to other high hazard sectors. The PSF website is a temporary home for these publications until a permanent base can be established.
