Establishing and maintaining CERNs regulatory framework in matters of Safety
Introduction to the CERN safety rules
CERN defines and implements a Safety Policy, The CERN Safety Policy that sets out the general principles governing Safety at CERN.
As an intergovernmental organization, CERN further establishes its own Safety Rules as necessary for its functioning. In this process it takes into account the laws and regulations of the Host States (France and Switzerland), EU regulations and directives as well as international regulations, standards and directives. Where the Organization does not establish Safety Rules, the relevant laws and the regulations of the Host States apply on a territorial basis.
