ARA Filed Comments to EPA on RMP Proposed Rule

Oct 31 2022

ARA filed comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) opposing the proposed rule on Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs (RMP) under the Clean Water Act.

In the comments, ARA says EPA should evaluate the RMP regulations from a "manufacturer to end user" perspective and address each safety and security issue if they intend to prove the public their efforts are comprehensive. ARA is raising legitimate concerns over the process of this regulatory proposal from EPA and the likelihood of exceeding its regulatory authority regarding many of the new requirements being placed on RMP facilities.
