EPA Delays Bolstered Clean Air Act RMP Requirements

Posted on 6/15/2017 by Roger Marks

US EPA announced on Tuesday, June 14, that the Agency will delay the effective date of new Clean Air Act Risk Management Plan (RMP) requirements for facilities that manufacture, store, or use certain volumes of hazardous chemicals. The new effective date for the bolstered RMP requirements is February 19, 2019.

See the announcement in the Federal Register here.


What’s in This Clean Air Act Final Rule?

Know_Your_OSHA_PSM_Requirements.jpgProposed in March 2016 and estimated to impact 12,500 facilities, the more stringent RMP rules require facilities to do more to determine the causes of catastrophic chemical incidents or near-misses, add safer technology and alternatives analysis (STAA) to their process hazards analysis (PHA) procedures, and abide by “enhanced” emergency preparedness requirements.

In addition, the new Clean Air Act RMP rules also expand the reporting requirements for facilities that operate certain processes.
