How does EPA verify accuracy and completeness of RMPs?

What does EPA plan to do to verify the accuracy and completeness of submitted RMPs?

All RMPs received by EPA go through an electronic verification process that checks the submission for its completeness. This completeness check determines whether information has been provided for all of the required entries but not whether that information is accurate or indicates compliance with the underlying requirements of the risk management program. Additionally, EPA regional offices and state RMP implementing agencies conduct compliance audits and inspections.
