Inherent Safety/Plant Design Impacts and "Safety Case" Regulatory Model
The RFI regarding modernizing EPA's RMP Regulation as a result of EO 13650 was published this summer, with comments due by October 29, 2014. This RFI is requesting input from all stakeholders on ideas to improve the RMP standard. These potential changes could significantly increase the regulatory compliance burden/risk for many chemical, petrochemical, oil and gas, and related industries/facilities for:
- Plant Siting and Buffer Zones
- New Projects
- Existing Plant Upgrades
- Stakeholder Interactions
These webinars will help you:
- Understand how the rules could change
- Learn ways to engage with the EO Working Group and regulatory agencies to ensure sensible, effective improvements in the regulatory regime
- Identify actions you can do now to lessen the impact on your business and improve process safety
