Certification Statement for Correction

Does the certifying official have to sign a certification statement for a correction to a Risk Management Plan?  If so, does that certification apply to the entire RMP or just for the correction being made?

Yes, the certifying official must sign a digital certification statement in RMP*eSubmit, and it will only apply to the correction, not the entire RMP. All RMPs submitted to EPA must contain a certification statement, regardless of whether it is an initial submission, update, or correction.

Additional information is provided in the RMP*eSubmit User’s Manual (EPA 540-B-18-001). The RMP*eSubmit User’s Manual (EPA 540-B-18-001) can be found at:
