- 112(r) Decision Tree (pdf) - A flowchart designed to help in determining whether a facility is subject to 112(r) and, if the facility is covered, which Program Level the facility falls under.
- Program Level Requirements Chart (pdf) - A chart listing the requirements of each Program Level in 112(r).
- 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.
If a process does not qualify for Program I or Program III, then it is automatically placed into Program II.
- 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:
Alkalies & Chlorine Manufacturing
All Other Basic Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing
Plastics Materials & Resin Manufacturing
Cyclic Crude & Intermediates
Nitrogenous Fertilizer Manufacturing
Pesticides & Other Agricultural Chemical Manufacturing
All Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing
- If the process does not have one of the SIC/NAICS codes, but the process is subject to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Process Safety Management (PSM) standard, then it falls under Program III.
