Risk Management (RMP)

Risk Management

Effective June 21, 1999, companies with certain hazardous chemicals at specific threshold quantities must have developed, implemented, and registered a Risk Management Plan.

As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, Congress directed the EPA to establish a regulatory program to prevent serious chemical accidents (Section 112(r)). The EPA published the final RMP rule on June 20, 1996, in 40 CFR 68. Anhydrous ammonia (TQ-10, 000 lb.) is one of the regulated chemicals.

Attached is a program comparison table and a program classification flow chart. The comparison table compares the different elements of each program. The classification flow chart will help in figuring out which program your plant will comply with.
