Risk Management Plan (RMP) FAQ
The summary below is for your convenience. We may not have the most recent information. Make sure you check with the Environmental Protection Agency for updates and more extensive information.
Who Must File an RMP
Please consult the following sources, in addition to the RMP rule, before preparing your plan:
- Risk Management Program Policy and Guidance – EPA provides several guidance documents to help facilities understand and comply with the RMP rule.
- 40 CFR 68.130 (Full Text) – A full list of chemicals regulated under the RMP rules.
- Title III Consolidated List of Lists – March 2015 Version – The Consolidated List of Chemicals Subject to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act and Section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act helps facilities determine whether they will be subject to the Chemical Accident Prevention Provisions.
According to the EPA,
Under the authority of section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act, the Chemical Accident Prevention Provisions require facilities that produce, handle, process, distribute, or store certain chemicals to develop a Risk Management Program, prepare a Risk Management Plan (RMP), and submit the RMP to EPA. Covered facilities were initially required to comply with the rule in 1999, and the rule has been amended on several occasions since then, most recently in 2004.
