Course Description

EPA's Risk Management Program rule (40 CFR Part 68) requires submission of a Risk Management Plan (RMP) to the EPA.Risk Management Plans must be updated and submitted to the EPA at least once every five years. Many facilities submitted their initial RMPs by the original June 21, 1999 deadline and have not resubmitted their RMPs since. This means that most RMP's must be fully updated and resubmitted by June 21, 2004.

The Risk Management Plans contain data elements relating to facility registration information, worst case and alternative release scenarios, 5-year accident history, prevention program and the facility's emergency response program.

This course explains how to ensure your RMP meets the requirements of the Risk Management Program rule and discusses steps in the updating and resubmission of your RMP to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
