Analysis of EPA’s SCCAP RMP Final Rule White Paper Now Available

On March 11, 2024, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the much-anticipated Safer Communities by Chemical Accident Prevention Rule (SCCAP) Final Rule, an update to EPA’s Risk Management Program (RMP) 40 CFR Part 68, under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAA). This is the first substantial change to the rule since its inception in 1996.

AcuTech has summarized the key points of the rule that industry must know about to plan for compliance. Several new requirements will have a substantial potential impact on the regulated community, particularly those in certain chemical and petroleum refining industries. In all, EPA estimates that there are nearly 12,000 RMP registered stationary sources in the United States.

The most impactful changes to the rule are summarized in our white paper covering the 2024 EPA RMP revisions:

  • Increased Enforcement Efforts
  • Hazard Analysis & Risk Reduction
  • Risk Communications, Employee and Public Involvement, and Transparency
  • Third Party Audits
  • Stationary Source Siting

The potential impacts to the general EPA RMP regulated community are very significant, but even more so for those sites with specific chemicals of focus to EPA. In this white paper our experts summarize the new and potentially involved required efforts based on AcuTech’s opinion on the order of priority.
