Advocacy Submits Comments on EPA’s Revisions to Accidental Release Prevention Requirements

The Office of Advocacy (Advocacy) submits the following comments in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed rule, Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs Under the Clean Air Act; Safer Communities by Chemical Accident Prevention. Accident prevention and safety precautions remain a priority for small entities that use and distribute hazardous chemicals to protect both the public and their employees. Advocacy, however, is concerned that EPA is unjustifiably adding burdensome requirements to the Risk Management Program (RMP) regulations, especially since the long-term trend demonstrates a decrease in RMP-related accidents.
