Leland P. Frost, Associate General Counsel of National Association of Manufacturers, spoke on the recent amendments to the Risk Management Program (RMP) rule. On March 13, EPA Administrator Pruitt signed a three-month say on the final rule's effective date. In April, EPA delayed the implementation of the final rule further. Come learn about the background, the requirements, and plans going forward. Leland also briefed participants on the international appeal before the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Commission v.
