Effective as of March 15, 2021, the EPA’s Risk Management Program Reconsideration Rule has been finalized and now requires RMP regulated facilities to perform a public meeting following a reportable accident with public impacts including (but not limited to) evacuations, injuries, offsite deaths, or environmental or property damage
Facility owners should provide notice of the meeting to the public and disclose details including date, time, and duration of release, type of release event, chemicals released, known impacts, and other required incident specifics identified in the Reconsideration Rule. RMP regulated facilities are required to hold this meeting within 90 days of the incident and failure to comply with this EPA-enforced rule could result in costly penalties.
