(2) Complete the five-year accident history for the process(es) as provided in rule 3745-104-16 of the Administrative Code and submit it in the RMP as provided in rule 3745-104-44 of the Administrative Code;

(3) Ensure that response actions have been coordinated with local emergency planning and response agencies; and

(4) Certify in the RMP the following: "based on the criteria in rule 3745-104-05 of the Administrative Code, 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 rule (paragraph (B)(1) of rule 3745-104-05 of the Administrative Code). No additional measures are necessary to prevent offsite impacts from accidental releases.

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.
