Guidance for Conducting Risk Management Program Inspections under Clean Air Act Section 112(r)

This document provides guidance for implementing agencies that conduct inspections of facilities (i.e., stationary sources) subject to 40 CFR Part 68, also called the EPA Risk Management Program. It is designed as a tool for inspectors reviewing industry compliance with the Risk Management Program regulation. However, this guidance does not reflect all requirements that a facility must meet to be in compliance with the regulation.
