California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP) Program


Calarp purpose l.jpg

Prevent the accidental release of regulated substances (RS)

Emergency planning

Community right-to-know

Off-site vs On-site release

CalARP Purpose


Calarp implementation l.jpg

CalARP Implementation

CalARP is the federal Risk Management Plan (RMP) program with additional state-specific elements

Latest CalARP regulations adopted June 28, 2004


Important definitions l.jpg

Regulated substance (Title 19, Section 2770.5)

Threshold quantity (Title 19, Section 2770.5)

Toxic endpoint (Title 19, Appendix A)

Stationary Source (Title 19, Section 2753.3(uu))

Process (Title 19, Section 2753.3(kk))

Public receptor (Title 19, Section 2753.3(nn))

Important Definitions




Regulated substances l.jpg

Regulated Substances

Table 1 - “federal” list of toxics (77)

Table 2 - “federal” list of flammables (63)

Table 3 - state-specific list of toxics (275)


Toxic endpoint l.jpg

Toxic Endpoint

A concentration of a toxic chemical in air above which there may be a serious health effect or death as a result of a single exposure for a short time.

Listed in Appendix A to CalARP regulations and Appendix B to CalARP Administering Agency Guidance.


Flammable endpoints l.jpg

Flammable Endpoints

An explosion with an overpressure of 1 psi or more.

A fire that creates a radiant heat of 5 kW/m2 for 40 seconds.

An atmosphere exceeding the NFPA lower flammability limit or lower explosive limit (LEL).


In the program l.jpg

A stationary source is subject to CalARP if it has more than a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

May have to develop a risk management plan.

“In the Program”


Slide11 l.jpg

IS YOUR a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

FACILITY A

DO YOU HAVE ANY REGULATED

SUBSTANCES IN A

PROCESS THAT ARE

ABOVE A THRESHOLD

CalARP PROGRAM COMPLIANCE

NOT REQUIRED


Slide12 l.jpg

Program Level Eligibility a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

  • Program 1

  • Level 1 is the least stringent level of risk management

  • No accidental release in past five years

  • Toxic or Flammable endpoint less than distance to public

  • receptor

  • Coordinated emergency response procedures

  • (Coordinate with first responders)


Slide13 l.jpg

Program Level Eligibility a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

  • Program 3

  • Level 3 is the most stringent program level

  • Do not meet Program 1 requirements

  • Process has North American Industry Classification System

  • (NAICS) code 32211, 32411, 32511, 325181, 325188, 325192,

  • 325199, 325211, 325311, or 32532.

  • Subject to OSHA process safety management (PSM)

  • standards

  • CUPA determines that additional safety/prevention measures

  • are necessary (based on nature and amount)


Slide14 l.jpg

NAICS Code Directory a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.


Slide15 l.jpg

Program Level Eligibility a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

  • Program 2

  • Do not meet the eligibility requirements of either

  • Program 1 or 3


Slide16 l.jpg

Program Level Assignment a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

Is the process

subject to OSHA

PSM standards?

Are public receptors

within the distance

to the endpoint for a

worst case release?

Yes

No

Yes

No

Is the process classified in one of the listed NAICS codes?

Process is

subject to Program Level 3

Yes

Yes

No

Process is eligible for

Program Level 1

(even if process is subject to OSHA PSM or is in one

of the Program Level 3 NAICS codes)

Have offsite impacts

occurred due to a

release of a regulated

substance from the

Process?

No

Process is subject

to Program Level 2

(this is the default

Program Level)


Slide17 l.jpg

RMP Components a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.

  • Registration

  • Executive Summary

  • Hazard Assessment

  • Prevention Program (2 or 3)

  • Emergency Response Program

  • Certification

Slide21 l.jpg

Accident Risk Determination a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process.Table 3

  • CUPA and owner/operator shall consult to establish RMP submittal date (12-36 months for existing stationary source or immediately for a new or modified stationary source).

  • CUPA determines that no risk exists:

    • May request RMP

    • May exempt from CalARP program

    • May reclassify program level (3 to 2 or 2 to 1)


Rmp submission deadlines tables 1 and 2 l.jpg

Submit RMP and registration to USEPA and CUPA no later than the latest of the following dates:

Date on which RS is first present in a process;

3 years after date RS is first listed; or,

5 years from the last RMP submission or 5 years from the last RMP update

RMP submit

Copy of RMP to CUPA

RMP Submission DeadlinesTables 1 and 2


Rmp submission table 3 l.jpg

Preliminary determination of risk by CUPA the latest of the following dates:

(nature, amount, accident history, potential public receptors, etc.)

CUPA determines that risk exists:

RMP is required

CUPA may reclassify program level (2 to 3)

CUPA notifies owner/operator to prepare and submit an RMP

RMP SubmissionTable 3


Slide24 l.jpg

  • Evaluation Review

    • CUPA review may include:

      • RMP evaluation (inspections, onsite document review)

      • standard application of engineering & scientific principles

      • site specific characteristics

      • technical accuracy

      • severity of offsite consequences

      • other information in possession of or reviewed by CUPA


Slide25 l.jpg

  • Complete Program 3 RMP reviews within 24 months

  • Complete Program 1 or 2 RMP reviews within 36 months


Slide26 l.jpg

RMP Updates the latest of the following dates:

  • At least once every five years from the date of initial submission or most recent

  • update;

  • No later than three years after a newly regulated substance is first listed;

  • No later than the date on which a new regulated substance is first present in an

  • already covered process above a threshold quantity;

  • No later than the date on which a regulated substance is first present above a

  • threshold quantity in a new process;

  • Within six months of a change that requires a revised PHA or hazard review;

  • Within six months of a change that requires a revised OCA; and,

  • Within six months of a change that alters the Program level.


General duty statement l.jpg

General Duty Statement the latest of the following dates:

Every facility that handles hazardous materials is expected to have a safe facility!

An injury or a fatality automatically creates a violation of the General Duty Statement!

There is no list of chemicals and there are no threshold quantities

Penalties may be significant
