|Abstract:||The European Council and the Parliament recognised that pipeline accidents had occurred in Europe and world-wide, which clearly indicated the 'major-accident hazard' potential of pipelines. The present paper presents an overview of the Community Policy on the control of major-accident hazards arising from pipelines, summarises the Commission Review/Assessment of existing legislation on pipelines within the Member States and outlines the principles on which a possible EU initiative should be based. The review has shown that many Member States do not have comprehensive 'major-accident hazard' legislation in place for pipelines and therefore an EU initiative would complete existing industrial risk management legislation, based on the 'precautionary principle'.|
