CCC addressed

Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) Governance of the transport of hazardous materials requires complex decision making regarding regulation, routing, land-use, and resources for emergency response. Decision-makers need to balance the needs of various actors, such as industry and the public; they must take a multi-hazard approach, they must take into account the spatial dimension of the problem, and they must know the vulnerability of their territory. Therefore, they must have appropriate decision support tools that facilitate the required integration of information. During the last few years the European Commission DG Joint Research Centre developed a number of such tools. Following the general phases of a typical risk management cycle, the presentation will illustrate their main characteristics and analyze their application in the safety and security domain. This paper presents the main results gained during the definition and the implementation of such systems. It also comments on the main limits and gaps imposed by data unavailability or interoperability constraints.
