Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Mississippi has received delegation of the risk management program and is the implementing agency. DEQ has adopted the federal program by reference and has no additional requirements. Facilities required to develop a program and submit a risk management plan should follow the federal program. For more information, see the national section RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM.
For Title V sources required to develop an RMP, the requirements of the plan will be included in the facility's Title V operating permit as applicable requirements. Such sources are responsible for certifying compliance with the requirements of the risk management program as part of the annual Title V operating permit compliance certification. For more information, see the national section TITLE V.
• Administration and enforcement. The Air Division of DEQ's Office of Pollution Control is the implementing agency and is responsible for administering and enforcing the risk management program. In addition, the Air Division is responsible for ensuring that Title V sources have submitted a plan as required and for drafting a Title V operating permit containing the applicable risk management program requirements.
