Chemical Hazard Information

Federal Reading Room Appointment Line

Federal Reading Rooms provide members of the public with "read-only" access to paper copies of Risk Management Plans (RMPs), including Off-Site Consequences Analysis (OCA) information submitted by chemical facilities, pursuant to the Chemical Safety Information, Site Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief Act (Pub. L. No. 106-40). Although all Federal Reading Rooms provide the same information, some reading rooms are operated by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and others are the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Check the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Federal Reading Rooms website for the location nearest you.

All DOJ Reading Rooms are operated on an "appointment-only" basis. Contact the Department's toll-free appointment line, 1-888-442-9267, at least 7 days prior to the date you wish to review RMPs. You will be asked to provide your full name; a daytime telephone number; the reading room location you wish to visit; and the names of the facilities whose RMPs you wish to view. In addition, you must provide a home or work address in order to receive access to those RMPs that could be provided by your Local Emergency Planning Committee.

A Reading Room Representative will contact you by telephone prior to the requested appointment date. This Representative will confirm the date and time of the reading room visit and will provide the address of the reading room site. Please immediately notify the Reading Room Appointment Center if you are unable to visit the reading room at the scheduled time.

For additional information, please see EPA's Risk Management Plan.
