||New French regulations require manufacturers to undertake a risk analysis as part of their hazard evaluation procedure. This analysis should take into account not only the severity of the effects of potential accidents, but also their probability of occurrence and their kinetics. By estimating the risk probability and the severity, it is possible to deduct its criticality, namely its position on a scale of importance with respect to its acceptability. This article presents the main provisions of the new regulations in the form of a table that summarizes the thresholds to be used in hazard evaluation for thermal effects, overpressures, toxic effects and projectiles.
