EPA’s Proposed Revisions to the Risk Management Program Rule

On May 30, 2018, EPA published proposed changes to its Risk Management Program (RMP) rule that was issued on January 13, 2017.  The proposed rule rescinds requirements related to safer technology and alternative analyses, third-party audits, incident investigations, and information availability. In addition, the agency proposes modifications to the requirements for the local emergency coordination and emergency exercises that provide flexibility in complying with the provisions.

EPA will be holding a public hearing on June 14, 2018 in Washington, D.C. To provide comments at the public hearing, the request must be sent by June 8, 2018. For more details, please visit EPA here.

  • The public comment period for the proposed rule ends on July 14, 2018.
