Program Levels Determine Requirements

Program 1

  • The worst case analysis must not impact a public receptor;
  • The facility must not have had an accidental release of a regulated substance for the five years prior to the submission of the RMP; and
  • The facility must have an emergency response plan on file with local responders.

Program 2

If a process does not qualify for Program I or Program III, then it is automatically placed into Program II.

Program 3

  • The process must not qualify for Program I; and
  • The regulated process has one of the following Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) or the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes:

    SIC

    Industry Sector

    NAICS

    2812

    Alkalies & Chlorine Manufacturing

    325181

    2819/2869

    All Other Basic Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing

    325188

    2821

    Plastics Materials & Resin Manufacturing

    325211

    2865
