RMP Five Year Update

June 2014 is the renewal date for most facilities regulated under the U.S. EPA Risk Management Plan (RMP) requirements.  If you store bulk anhydrous ammonia, you must have a RMP.  The RMP documentation and requirements have received a lot of attention over the last year in the wake of the fire and explosion at the West, Texas ag retail facility.  Expect U.S. EPA Region V to conduct RMP audits at Illinois ag retail facilities.  The Fertilizer Institute and Asmark Institute developed the myRMP web-based program to help facilities comply with RMP requirements.  Click here to access the myRMP program.  If you have any questions about RMP compliance, contact Kevin Runkle at the IFCA office.
