CSISSFRRA public meeting requirements

Pursuant to the Chemical Safety Information, Site Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief Act (CSISSFRRA), certain facilities subject to the Clean Air Act §112(r) were required to conduct public meetings to describe and discuss the local implications of their risk management plans (RMPs), including a summary of the facility’s off-site consequence analysis. Are there any current requirements for facilities to hold public meetings for submission or revisions of their RMPs?

There are no current CSISSFRRA requirements for RMP facilities to hold a public meeting to discuss their RMPs. The public meeting requirement under CSISSFRRA was a one-time requirement, which must have been completed by February 1, 2000.
On September 21, 2018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit Court issued its mandate which makes the 2017 RMP Amendments rule now effective. The 2017 RMP Amendments rule included a provision for a public meeting 90 days after an RMP accident. The compliance date for this public meeting requirement is March 15, 2021.
