EPA Compliance Assistance Webinar for Agricultural Facilities Expires Online Feb. 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Lenexa, Kan., Feb. 4, 2021) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 has posted online the Compliance Assistance Webinar held Aug. 25, 2020, hosted by its Enforcement and Compliance Assurance staff. The webinar includes a discussion about Risk Management Program rule changes that affect agricultural facilities and a session for questions and researched answers.
Section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act requires facilities that use extremely hazardous substances to develop risk management plans to prevent accidental releases that can cause serious harm to the public and the environment. In November 2019, EPA finalized changes to the Risk Management Program (RMP) Amendments to better address potential security risks, regulatory consistency, and reasonable consideration of costs.
The webinar discussion focuses on changes to incident investigations; public meetings following RMP-reportable accidents; emergency response exercises; and enhanced coordination with local emergency planners and responders.
