U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in partnership with state (SERC) and local planning committees (LEPC) invites you to a free half-day compliance assistance workshop on Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) and Clean Air Act, Section 112(r) Risk Management Program (RMP). These workshops are designed for environmental compliance managers and owners. The workshop will cover threshold determinations, exemptions, and other commonly asked questions. For compliance with EPCRA and RMP, there are various planning and reporting requirements on businesses and industries that store and/or use certain chemicals/substance/materials.
