Compliance with the RMP Rule at a Waste Management Facility
A waste management facility typically treats, stores, and disposes chemical wastes that contain chemicals listed under 40 CFR §68.130. After a thorough evaluation of the existing chemical inventories, it is determined that this facility is not subject to the Risk Management Program rule based on the exemptions given in the rule for the de minimis threshold quantities. Due to the uncertainties of the chemicals received by the facility, it is a challenge to continuously demonstrate compliance with the exemptions specified by the rule. This paper presents a program developed by the waste management facility to track chemical inventories for future compliance demonstrations.
