Excerpt from "CAA Section 112r Prevention of Accidental Releases: It reaches farther than you think"
The 1990 CAAA established a program to prevent the accidental releases of hazardous substances. Facilities having more than a threshold quantity of a listed substance in a process must comply with the Risk Management Program, but the listed substances are not the only substances that pose hazards, and the established threshold quantities may not necessarily represent levels below which no hazards exist. It is for these reasons that the chemical accident prevention statutes contain a General Duty Clause, which greatly expands the universe of sources subject to 112(r). This report will help you determine if your facility is within the universe of sources covered by 112(r) and what you must do to comply.
