Flexible Framework Guidance

In 2010, UNEP together with collaborating organisations and experts developed a Flexible Framework for Addressing Chemical Accident Prevention and Preparedness – A Guidance Document (Flexible Framework Guidance) to assist governments in developing, reviewing, or revising a chemical accident prevention and preparedness (CAPP) programme. It provides in-depth information on steps that are needed before developing and implementing an effective CAPP, sets out possible elements of such programme, and provides resource materials related to how these elements may be implemented. By applying the approach suggested in the Flexible Framework Guidance, a country can focus on those elements that are relevant to its legal and cultural context and can define actions based on the nature and extent of national priorities, resources and experiences.

The Flexible Framework Guidance was designed to be used globally in a variety of contexts based on countries’ needs, resources and capabilities. It is intended to be a valuable tool for a wide range of countries, including those with few or no activities or systems in place to address chemical accident prevention and preparedness, as well as those that have some competencies in this area and want to determine whether improvements can be made.

The Guidance builds upon more than 30 years of experience in addressing chemical accident prevention and takes into account international regulations, agreements, national laws and guidance materials.  Since publication of the Guidance, UNEP has received several requests from countries for support in applying the Guidance. As a result, UNEP organised several CAPP Programme Projects to work with authorities and other stakeholders to further elaborate mechanisms to implement the Guidance and to provide training to improve the capacity of relevant institutions, agencies and experts within the countries to address the issue of chemical accidents more…
