2nd CCPS Global Summit on Process Safety

November 3-5, 2015

On the 30th anniversary of Bhopal tragedy, CCPS initiated the 1st CCPS Global Summit on Process Safety. This historic event was held in Mumbai on December 2014. The theme of the Summit was based on CCPS Process Safety Vision 20/20. The huge response and success of this event prompted CCPS to continue the Global Summit series until the year 2020. PETRONAS, a leading member in CCPS, took leadership initiatives and decided to support our efforts and sponsored the 2nd CCPS Global Summit on Process Safety. The UNIVERSITI TEKNOLOGI PETRONAS (UTP) readily agreed to be Co-organizer of the Global Summit.
