RMP*Comp is a program that was developed by NOAA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help chemical facilities that fall under the Risk Management Planning (RMP) rule complete their required offsite consequence analysis. The RMP rule implements Section 112(r) of the 1990 Clean Air Act (CAA).
The RMP*Comp program steps users through a short list of questions about the CAA-regulated chemical (such as the amount released) in the offsite consequence analysis—both worst-case and alternative scenarios can be run. Based on entered information, RMP*Comp estimates the distance to endpoint according to EPA's recommended procedures. The facilities can then enter the RMP*Comp values into their final RMP plan.
