Hazardous Weather Release Prevention and Reporting Rquirements From EPA
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)has issued a Hazardous Weather Release Prevention and Reporting alert to remind facility managers about laws and regulations that require they minimize chemical releases during process shutdown operations; and if reportable releases occur, they must be reported immediately upon constructive knowledge of occurrence.
Issued at the start of hurricane season, the report is designed to increase awareness among facility managers about their obligation to operate facilities safely and report chemical releases in a timely manner. The alert specifies operational release minimization requirements and clarifies reporting requirements, including exemptions.
