Comparison: State vs. Federal

• Rules. Oregon 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 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. See the national section RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM for more information on the federal program.

• Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 10 will implement the Risk Management Program in Oregon. Within their respective jurisdictions, the DEQ and the LRAPA are responsible for checking that Title V sources have submitted an RMP, as required, and for drafting a Title V operating permit containing the applicable Risk Management Program requirements.
