Abstract : The SAFETY ANALYSIS prescribed by the new French regulation is an excellent mean to rationalize the numerous steps and choices which are to be achieved all along the design of new explosive facilities. As the conformity criteria are very detailed and discriminating, dependent in particular both on the severity and the probability of the feared events, it is possible to design our facilities and to used them on one hand without inadequacy of mean and on the other hand, without overestimated protections, equipments and instructions. As many requirements are formulated in term of results, it is possible to introduce innovations which improve safety in our plants with adequate, economical performances. Briefly, the SAFETY ANALYSIS prescribed by the new French regulations, represents more than an obligation and a formality, it is principally an excellent method to improve safety.
