The Ministry of Emergency Management revised and issued the Guidelines for the Investigation and Management of Safety Risks in Chemical Parks.

The Emergency Management Department recently revised and issued the "Guidelines for Safety Risk Investigation and Management of Chemical Parks" to further guide and standardize and strengthen the safety risk investigation and management of chemical parks.

The revision of the Guidelines focuses on convergence with existing policy standards, focuses on the prevention and control of major safety risks, strictly adheres to the bottom line of safety development, and further clarifies the definition of chemical parks, safety risk assessment and dynamic adjustment mechanisms, and safety risk investigation rules for chemical parks.

The "Guidelines" clarify that all regions must adhere to scientific planning and reasonable layout, standardize the site selection of chemical parks, clarify the scope of regional and surrounding safety control, strengthen the overall safety risk assessment of chemical parks, and avoid domino effects. It is necessary to adhere to strict access and standardized management, formulate and implement the "prohibition and control" catalog, strengthen the safety control of the source of hazardous chemical production and construction projects, and strictly prevent and control the safety risks of chemical industry transfer.

The guidelines require that chemical parks and provincial levels should regularly carry out safety risk level assessment, systematically carry out safety risk investigation and management, implement "one park, one policy" rectification, consolidate the safety guarantee foundation, and comprehensively improve the intrinsic safety level of chemical parks from the aspects of park identification, site selection and planning, park layout, project access and exit, supporting functional facilities, safety production and emergency integrated management, etc.

The Guidelines emphasize that the occurrence of large and above production safety accidents and substandard professional supervision personnel shall be directly determined as high safety risks; for chemical parks with high and higher safety risk levels, new, modified and expanded hazardous chemical production and construction projects shall be stopped during the rectification period; if the general or lower safety risk level is still not reached after rectification and review, dynamic adjustment shall be implemented to promote the continuous renovation and upgrading of chemical parks, gradually realize the overall goal of centralized layout, cluster development, and reduce safety risks, and resolutely curb major accidents.
