Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oklahoma has not taken 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 Title V sources required to develop an RMP, the requirement to develop and register an RMP will be included in the facility's Title V operating permit as an applicable requirement. However, the content of the plan itself will not be included in the Title V operating permit. Applicable Title V sources are responsible for certifying compliance with the requirement to submit an RMP as part of the annual Title V operating permit compliance certification. For more information, see the national section RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM.

Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 6 will be implementing the risk management program in Oklahoma. DEQ's Air Quality Division is 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.
