Abstract This report examines the techniques that can be used to assess the significance of risk in quantitative terms and compares how these techniques are used in practice in the nuclear industry with the way they are used in those parts of the process industry that can be classified as having a major hazard potential. The report concentrates on the practices in Germany (Fed.Rep.), the United Kingdom and France. Some additional comments are made on the practices adopted in the Netherlands and Denmark.
