In order to modernize the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Risk Management Program (RMP) regulations under EO 13650, and for the federal government to help local fire, police, and emergency response personnel respond to chemical emergencies, the EPA released its much anticipated proposed amendments to the Accidental Release Prevention / Risk Management Plan Rules under the Clean Air Act. The proposed rule would add requirements to the process hazard analysis (PHA), require third party audits in certain circumstances, augment the emergency preparedness requirements, increase public availability of chemical hazard information, and amend other regulatory definitions and data elements submitted to the EPA. Owners or operators of facilities with more than a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in their processes must comply with the requirements of EPA's RMP regulations, including these amendments if finalized as proposed.
In this live Webcast, The Knowledge Group assembled a panel of thought leaders and professionals to help the audience understand the important issues of and legal insights into EPA’s proposed Risk Management Program Rule. Speakers will provide best practices on how to comply with the new requirements if the rule is finalized as proposed.
Key topics include:
- Accidental Release Prevention / Risk Management Plan Rules – Proposed Amendments and Technical Corrections
- Prevention Program Requirements
- Process Hazard Analysis (PHA)
- Emergency Response Preparedness Requirements
- Information Availability Requirements
- Proposed Rule Contents, Assessments, and Issues
- Enforcement Initiatives
- Risks and Legal Challenges
