A national system of inspections covering all establishments must be implemented by the Authority.

Inspections must be appropriate to the establishment being inspected and they must be sufficient for a planned and systematic examination of the systems in place at the establishment, so as to ensure that the operator can demonstrate that the appropriate measures have been taken for the prevention of major accidents and the limitation of their consequences.

Further information on inspections is available in the Guide to the COMAH Regs 2015.
