Industry Sounds-off on EPA’s Proposed Clean Air Act RMP Changes
Under the RMP program, certain businesses must prepare and submit a written report to EPA before engaging in an industrial process—meaning use, storage, manufacturing, handling, or on-site movement of a covered chemical—that shows they’ve adequately prepared for the risks their activities pose to the environment. Find out more about Clean Air Act Risk Management Planning here.
What Changes Did EPA Proposes for RMP?
Announced early this year and posted to the Federal Register on March 14, 2016, EPA’s proposed changes to the RMP rules would add additional requirements for emergency preparedness at covered facilities. The revised rules are a response, in part, to the 2013 ammonium nitrate explosion at the West Fertilizer Storage Company in West, Texas.
Who Attended the Meeting?
A number of private organizations and industry groups shared their expertise and opinions with EPA about the proposed changes to the RMP rules, including representatives of the American Chemistry Council (ACC), American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, Chlorine Institute, Union of Concerned Scientists, Greenpeace, American Forest & Paper Association, Eastman Chemical Company, and International Dairy Foods Association.
