"Safety Guidelines and Good Practices for Tailings Management Facilities”, developed by the UNECE, includes recommendations for countries and the competent authorities on improving the legal framework and licensing system for the safe operation of the tailings as well as technical details on the organization of technical security and control of industrial tailings.

In the first project, dedicated to the tailings management facilities safety (see below, "Improving the safety of industrial tailings management facilities based on the example of Ukrainian facilities"), our team developed the Methodology on tailings safety

In this project "Raising Knowledge among Students and Teachers on Tailings Safety and Its Legislative Review in Ukraine" our goal is to teach group of students and postgraduate students the Methodology. On the base of the trainings materials – lectures, feedbacks, expert assessment – to develop online course "Tailings safety".



Previous connected project 

International project
"Improving the safety of industrial tailings management facilities based on the example of Ukrainian facilities" (completed)

This project examined each principle and recommendation of the UNECE Guidelines and compared the specific situation in Ukraine on its application. The result was structured to assess the situation in Ukraine, so that, based on the results suggestions can be given on the technical measures to improve the operation of industrial tailings and taking appropriate administrative and legislative decisions.

Additionally a significant technical part of the UNECE Guidelines used to develop a checklist with the involvement of the experience of international experts in this field. With it, one can pinpoint weaknesses in the technical safety of tailings in the Ukraine, in order to develop short, medium and long term measures to address them. (On the right sidebar you can find the results of the project).


Cooperation of governmental and non-governmental organizations of Ukraine and a group of international experts was envisaged for successful solution all tasks and for achieving project goals, namely the adaptation of Ukrainian legislation regarding the safe operation of the tailings facilities to the requirements of the UNECE Guidelines.

This project has an international importance, as increasing the safety of industrial TMF in Ukraine increases environmental safety for neighboring countries in basins of rivers Dnipro, Danube, Dniester and the Black Sea.
