PSID Confidentiality & Liability

Last updated November 9, 2021

The anonymity of submitted incident data is carefully protected.  The database does not include the name and address of the submitting organization unless that submitting company makes special arrangements to do so.  When an incident is drafted by a member company and submitted to the Database Administrator for approval, it is assigned a number as an identifier.

To protect the confidentiality of data submitted by participants, a number of special measures are in place as follows:

  • The selection of specific process safety incidents for submission of data is strictly voluntary.
  • Companies have the right to refrain from submitting any incident that might be involved in litigation or might otherwise be sensitive.  CCPS does not dictate which incidents are to be entered.
