Seveso sites are all sites identified as source for a "potential major

military or nuclear facilities). It is named after the Seveso disaster of
1976 <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seveso_disaster> (Seveso is a town in
Italy) which had a big media coverage and important impact on health in the
area (many animals were slaughtered, and many people affected).

As far as i understand, the seveso directive is based on different
threshold (the threshold depends on the chemical element, the stability of
the product, ...). If it is below the first threshold, it is not a Seveso
site (not at big risk), if it pass the first threshold it is "Low" (low
risk) and if it pass the second threshold it is ranked as "High" (high
