Abstract Proceedings of the European Conference on Emergency Planning for Industrial Hazards, held in Varese (Italy), 4-6 Nov. 1987, and organised by the Commission of the European Communities at which experts from a number of countries, and particularly from within the EC, exchanged information on existing systems of emergency planning. Special attention is given to areas where difficulties still persist such as predicting the consequences of an accident, the complexities of communication problems and the difficulties arising from involvement of the public. The proceedings are divided into six parts: organisations implementing emergency planning; on- and off-site emergency planning and design; techniques for emergency plans; exercises and auditing of emergency plans; lessons learnt from the emergency management of major accidents; information to the public before and during emergencies. In the appendix: list of conference participants.
