By a letter dated 13 March 2017, the Administrator announced the convening of a proceeding for reconsideration of the final rule that amends the chemical accident prevention provisions addressing Risk Management Programs under the Clean Air Act published in the Federal Register on 13 January 2017. The effective date of these regulations had been 21 March 2017. By this action, the EPA is administratively staying and delaying the effective date of this rule for 90 days.
