CAPRI – Online resources

This section is intended to contain data from various sources both internal and external to the JRC. The section is still in development and only the following are currently available:

  • Access to the eMARS accidents’ list and statistics
  • MAHB Data Analyses (currently, one analysis is available)
  • Access to eNATECH data
  • The Hydrogen Incident and Accidents Database (HIAD 2.0)
  • More data links


Accident Reports
HIAD 2.0

The eMARS accidents’ list contains reports of chemical accidents and near misses provided to the Major Accident Hazards Bureau (MAHB). The list includes events that occurred in Seveso establishments and meet the criteria of a “major accident” as defined by Annex VI of the Seveso III Directive (201218/EU), as well as events that are voluntarily reported from non-EU OECD and UNECE countries.

The eMARS statistics section provides a real-time snapshot of eMARS data on the number of accident reports by year, Seveso site classification, industry type, reasons for reporting and accidents involving special circumstances (i.e., involvement of contractors or domino effects, Natech events or transboundary impacts).

MAHB Data Analyses
This section contains analyses results generated from JRC-MAHB studies on lessons learned, hazardous substances or specific thematic areas.
One analysis is available but, more will be added soon.

The eNATECH database contains information on technological accidents triggered by a natural hazard or disaster involving the release of hazardous substances, referred to as Natech accidents. The aim of this database is to provide information on Natech accidents that occurred worldwide and allow the searching and analysis of Natech accident reports for lessons-learning purposes.

HIAD 2.0
The Hydrogen Incident and Accidents Database (HIAD 2.0) is a repository of hydrogen-related unwanted events developed by the JRC in the frame of the European Network of Excellence HySafe. HIAD 2.0 is being accommodated in CAPRI as a standalone Excel file available for download, allowing users to access and analyse the data according to their needs.
An interactive tool to enhance HIAD 2.0 visualisation as well as provide user-customised analytical functions is under development and will be available soon.

This section provides a list of open-source chemical accident databases, reports and analyses from various sources external to the JRC.
More links will be available soon.
