2024 Revisions to the EPA’s Risk Management Program (RMP) Rule: Audits, Facility Siting, and Emergency Response

Wednesday, June 3, 2024
12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT

Discover the latest updates to the EPA’s RMP rule and its enforcement, including the following:

  • Third Party Audits: The requirement for some sites to use third-party auditors for the tri-annual compliance audit may result in new and unexpected opinions on compliance that will need to be managed, especially for those sites where self-auditing was the norm, particularly the accommodation of dissenting opinions among auditors.
  • Stationary Source Siting: The hazard evaluations conducted the PHA element explicitly define stationary source siting as inclusive of the placement of processes, equipment, buildings within the facility, and hazards posed by proximate facilities, and accidental release consequences posed by proximity to the public and public receptors.  EPA did not define the analytical methods or techniques to be used to determine the consequences.
  • Emergency Response Activity: Greater emphasis on emergency response planning and coordination with first responders.

White Paper Now Available

In support of our webinar series, AcuTech has developed a white paper that summarizes the key points of the rule that industry must know about to plan for compliance.
