This secure portal manages thousands of data submissions from States and industry. For sources that have submitted an RMP previously, EPA will mail them a letter with directions on how to submit their RMPs Online. For sources that are submitting an RMP for the first time, EPA will provide instructions for using the Online system via the Agency’s public Web site at http://www.epa.gov/ emergencies/rmp. EPA has also developed a user’s manual to provide additional information on using the new reporting system. The user’s manual will also be available at the above public Web site. EPA is not requiring any new data elements with this new reporting system. The current requirements are approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the paperwork E:\FR\FM\15APN1.SGM 15APN1
