RMP Development and Implementation

Why Is an RMP Necessary?

The Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990, Section 112(r), required the EPA to issue regulations and guidance to prevent accidents and releases at facilities producing, handling, processing, distributing, or storing certain chemicals. The Chemical Accident Prevention Provisions of Section 112(r) require these facilities to develop, implement and sustain a risk management plan (RMP).
