§ 5050.5. General Requirements.
(a) Coordination. The owner or operator of a stationary source shall closely coordinate with the UPA to implement the requirements of this chapter and to determine the appropriate level of documentation required for an RMP to comply with Sections 5070.3 through 5070.10 of this chapter. This requirement shall not preclude public access to RMP information. Classified information need not be included in the RMP but shall be made available to the UPA to the extent allowable by law. Trade secrets are protected pursuant to Section 25538 of HSC.
(b) General requirements for RMPs.
(1) The owner or operator of a stationary source that is subject to this chapter, pursuant to Section 5050.4, shall submit an RMP which includes all requirements described in Section 5070.3 through 5070.10.
(2) The RMP shall include a registration that reflects all covered processes.
(c) Model RMPs may be used by stationary sources if accepted for use by UPAs, in consultation with Agency. Model RMPs for a process that has in excess of a threshold quantity of a regulated substance listed in Table 1 or 2 of Section 5130.6 must also be recognized by USEPA. Agency may limit the use, application, or scope of these models.
(d) Program 1 requirements. In addition to meeting the requirements of section (b), the owner or operator of a stationary source with a process eligible for Program 1, as provided in Section 5050.4(c) shall:
(1) Analyze the worst-case release scenario for the process(es), as provided in Section 5080.3; document that the nearest public receptor is beyond the distance to a toxic or flammable endpoint defined in Section 5080.2(a); and submit in the RMP the worst-case release scenario as provided in Section 5070.4;
(2) Complete the five-year accident history for the process as provided in Section 5080.9 of this chapter and submit it in the RMP as provided in Section 5070.5;
(3) Ensure that response actions have been coordinated with local emergency planning and response agencies (e.g., site visits by first responders); and,
(4) Certify in the RMP the following: “Based on the criteria in Section 5050.4 of Title 19 of CCR, the distance to the specified endpoint for the worst-case accidental release scenario for the following process(es) is less than the distance to the nearest public receptor: [list process(es)]. Within the past five years, the process(es) has (have) had no accidental release that caused offsite impacts provided in the risk management program Section 5050.4(c)(1). No additional measures are necessary to prevent offsite impacts from accidental releases. In the event of fire, explosion, or a release of a regulated substance from the process(es), entry within the distance to the specified endpoints may pose a danger to public emergency responders. Therefore, public emergency responders should not enter this area except as arranged with the emergency contact indicated in the RMP. The undersigned certifies that, to the best of my knowledge, information, and belief, formed after reasonable inquiry, the information submitted is true, accurate, and complete. (Signature, title, date signed).”

(5) Submit as part of the RMP the data on prevention program elements for Program 2 processes as provided in Section 5070.6.

(5) Submit as part of the RMP the data on prevention program elements for Program 3 processes as provided in Section 5070.7.
(g) Program 4 requirements. In addition to meeting the requirements of section (b), the owner or operator of a stationary source, as defined in Section 5050.4(f) shall:
