• demonstrate how the risk of these major emergencies occurring has been reduced to ‘As Low As Reasonably Practical’ (ALARP);
• identify the consequences to the port and surrounding areas if a major emergency should occur;
• identify how the response and recovery to such an emergency is to be managed and what capacity and capability exists to manage such an emergency;
