Federal Reading Rooms for Risk Management Plans (RMP)

RMP information may be accessed via the Federal Reading Rooms which are open to the public to review RMP information. You may access Off-Site Consequence Analysis (scenarios) portions of Risk Management Plans (RMPs). RMP information without Off-Site Consequence Analysis is available on request.


What should I expect to happen when I arrive at the Federal Reading Room?

You should familiarize yourself with the following procedures:

  • You may read and take notes of Off-site Consequences Analysis (OCA) information. However, you may not remove, photocopy, or otherwise mechanically reproduce OCA information.
  • You may access OCA information for up to 10 facilities per calendar month, without geographic restriction. To do this you must show photo identification issued by a federal, state, or local government agency such as a driver's license or passport. You will also be asked to sign a certification on a sign-in sheet.
  • You may also access OCA information for all of the facilities that are located in or potentially impact the jurisdiction of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) where you live or work. To access local information, you must provide appropriate documentation showing where you live or work and your address and your signature on a sign-in sheet.

Do I need to make an appointment to visit a Federal Reading Room?

There are two types of Federal Reading Rooms:

  1. A "By Appointment" Reading Room requires you to set up an appointment and request OCA Information from specific facilities several days in advance, so that paper copies can be printed and delivered from elsewhere.
  2. A "Walk-In" Reading Room generally provides access during its office hours. However, even for a walk-in Reading Room, it is best to call ahead. This lets you confirm its availability and learn of any site-specific requirements, and it gives the Reading Room a chance to prepare for your visit.

Do all Federal Reading Rooms provide the same information?

Yes, all Federal Reading Rooms can provide you with the same information.

Who supports the Federal Reading Rooms?

Some reading rooms are supported by EPA, while the others are the responsibility of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
