Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs Under the Clean Air Act (Final)
Dec. 19, 2019
The EPA is revising regulations designed to reduce the risk of accidental releases of hazardous chemicals. These regulations are part of the EPA's Risk Management Program (RMP), which the EPA established under authority in the Clean Air Act and recently amended on January 13, 2017. EPA is rescinding recent amendments to these regulations that EPA no longer consider reasonable or practicable relating to safer technology and alternatives analyses, third-party audits, incident investigations, information availability, and several other minor regulatory changes. EPA is also modifying regulations relating to local emergency coordination, emergency response exercises, and public meetings. In addition, EPA is changing compliance dates for some of these provisions. This final rule is effective on 19 December 2019.
