Risk Management Program (RMP)

According to EPA’s website, an overview of the RMP programs is as follows:

“Under the authority of section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act, the Chemical Accident Prevention provisions require facilities that produce, handle, process, distribute, or store greater than a threshold quantity of any listed toxic or flammable extremely hazardous substance to develop a Risk Management Program, prepare a Risk Management Plan (RMP), and submit the RMP to EPA. Covered facilities were initially required to comply with the rule in 1999, and the rule has been amended on several occasions since then, most recently in 2004.”
