The objective of the California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP) program is to prevent accidental releases of those substances determined to potentially pose the greatest risk of immediate harm to the public and the environment. Stationary sources (facilities) that handle regulated substances in industrial processes above threshold quantity levels are subject to the CalARP program requirements. The CalARP program encompasses both the federal “Risk Management Program”, established in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Part 68, and the State of California program, in accordance with the California Health and Safety Code (HSC), Chapter 6.95, Article 2 and California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 19, Division 2, Chapter 4.5.
