Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Neither ADEQ nor any of the local regulatory agencies is seeking delegation of the risk management program. Facilities required to develop a risk management program and submit a risk management plan (RMP) 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. EPA Region 9 will be implementing the risk management program in Arizona. ADEQ and the local regulatory agencies are responsible for checking 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.
