Part IIntroduction

1.  This Schedule applies to the presence of dangerous substances at any establishment and determines the application of the relevant regulations in accordance with regulation 3(1).

2.  Mixtures and preparations shall be treated in the same way as pure substances provided they remain within the concentration limits set according to their properties under the relevant provisions specified in Part III, Note 1, unless a percentage composition or other description is specifically given.

3.  The qualifying quantities set out in Parts II and III relate to each establishment.

4.  The quantities to be considered for the application of the relevant regulations are the maximum quantities which are present at any one time.
