nder Section 112(r) of the federal Clean Air Act, certain facilities are required to have a risk management program and submit a summary of that program called a Risk Management Plan. Facilities are affected depending upon the types and quantities of chemicals used
. The Risk Management Plan (RMP) that facilities are required to submit must
outline potential risks of their processes and the measures being taken for the safe handling of the chemicals used.
RMP information is then made available for review by those who may be interested. Community involvement, including those who must respond to a chemical release or emergency other local government authorities and citizens are encouraged to review the RMP information. By reviewing and commenting on facility RMPs, stakeholders will help ensure that programs provide needed levels of safety, prevention, and preparedness against chemical accidents.
