Chemical Response Guides

First line information in case of chemical spills into water

Our chemical response guides can be used during emergency response in the event of an incident involving hazardous substances liable to cause water pollution.

These documents are designed to enable rapid access to the necessary initial information (first line emergency data), in addition to providing relevant bibliographical sources to obtain further information. They also contain the results of scenarios relating to incidents in the Channel, the Mediterranean and in rivers.
 
These guides form an updated and expanded collection based on an initial collection of "mini response guides" published by Cedre in the early 1990s. The products covered by this new collection are listed below.
