Failure to report ammonia releases immediately could result in EPA fine
GCCA
The Emergency Release Notification requirements established by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), require regulated facilities (temperature-controlled warehouses included) to notify emergency response agencies immediately following the accidental release of a hazardous substance, such as ammonia. While the rule does not define how long “immediate” is, the IARW Compliance Overview explains that it is the temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics industry’s understanding that EPA applies a 15-minute standard for notification and that delayed notifications are subject to financial penalties. The IARW Compliance Overview includes the most common reporting requirements faced by cold storage operators in the United States. GCCA members may download this vital resource here.More
