Farley & Partners and AcuTech Consulting to Host RMP Webinars

March 29, 2024

On February 27, 2024, US EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan signed the Safer Communities by Chemical Accident Prevention rule, codified at 40 CFR Part 68, which finalizes revisions to the Risk Management Program (RMP). This update represents a significant revision to a major federal chemical accident prevention regulation. The EPA officially published this new rule on March 11, 2024 and it takes effect on May 11, 2024.

To help facility owners and operators understand and comply with the new RMP requirements, Farley & Partners LLP and AcuTech Consulting Group are planning a series of free webinars to provide additional insight and advice on the rule starting with an overview of key aspects and challenges, followed by future sessions on details of specific elements. Firm Managing Partner Mark Farley and AcuTech President and CEO David Moore will be the co-presenters.

The webinars will offer valuable insights for facilities affected by the EPA RMP Rule. Topics covered will include:

+ Changes to the existing RMP rule and their impacts and challenges
+ Compliance strategies
+ Discussions of legal issues and practical compliance strategies
+ Development & implementation of new technical approaches
+ Safer Technology and Alternatives Analysis (STAA)
+ Preparing for the changes and for an EPA inspection

The first webinar will occur on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, at 12:00 - 1:00 PM CDT.
