Now that the program is finalized, facilities will start receiving AB2588 notification letters from SCAQMD. Once a letter is received, a facility must respond and go through the various steps of the AB2588 program, which usually begins with preparing an Air Toxics Inventory Report (ATIR). Certain facilities will have the option to enter the Voluntary Risk Reduction Program (VRRP). Regardless of which path you choose, the amended AB2588 program requires detailed responses within quick turnaround deadlines. The first step to take is to prepare a thorough, accurate ATIR because the next steps of the program will be based on your initial report. Accurate responses are crucial as under reporting can lead to violations or litigation and over reporting may result in unnecessary effort and expenditures.
If you receive a letter and would additional information specific to your facility, contact Chris Waller at (800) 777-0605 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
