Abstract: This paper describes the background, functioning and status of the European Commission's Major Accident Reporting System (MARS) , dedicated to collect in a consistent way data on major industrial accidents involving dangerous substances from the Member States of the European Union, to analyse and statistically process them, and to create subsets of all non-confidential accidents data and analysis results for export to all Member States. Results from analysing data of major industrial accidents reported to MASR are presented. It can be shown that some of the main assumptions in the new 'Seveso II Directive' can directly be validated from MARS data.
