Publication Date: 31 March 2020

​​​​​​​SEISS is a national system designed to provide knowledge management of information on environmental incidents in Scotland. The aim is to create a source of information that agencies can use to find out what incidents have happened locally and nationally and as a source of information and contacts to help manage any similar incidents. 

SEISS is a database holding details of incidents reported by participating agencies, where there may be a risk to public health due to the release into the environment of chemical, microbiological, radiation or other physical agents. 

SEISS is currently the only web based system available in Scotland that provides access to reports of environmental incidents across all of Scotland from a range of different reporting agencies. ​​​
