Regulatory Update: Groups petition EPA to require inherently safer technologies at chemical facilities
A group of more than 50 environmental, health and labor organizations have submitted a petition to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asking the agency to begin a rulemaking under Clean Air Act Section 112(r) to require facilities that use or store hazardous chemicals to use inherently safer technologies. This is the latest of many attempts by these organizations to impose IST requirements on chemical facilities through the EPA's Clean Air Act after having been unsuccessful to date in having these mandates imposed through chemical security legislation or regulations.
