Required by regulation for some organizations (see the list of substances and storage conditions for liability) under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, the objective of an environmental emergency plan is essentially to eliminate, reduce, or mitigate environmental impacts in the event of a release of hazardous material.
The goal of an environmental emergency plan is to develop response procedures that will reduce the impact of an environmental incident. Multi Risk International can support you in the development of an environmental emergency plan that will meet regulatory requirements and adopt recognized best practices in the field.
Environmental emergency regulations may require the following:
- Submit a Notice of Identification of Substance and Place within 90 days
- Prepare an E2 plan and submit a Notice of Preparation within six months
- Implement and test an E2 plan and submit a Notice of Implementation within a year
- Keep a copy of the plan at the place for which it was prepared
- Test the E2 plan annually and keep records for a minimum of five years
- Notify and report environmental emergencies involving regulated substances
In this sense, the environmental emergency plan takes into account the consequences of the alternative accident scenario, identified beforehand within the framework of the hazard study (see the risk analysis section), as well as the prevention and mitigation measures in place within the organization.
Multi Risk International can support your development of an environmental emergency plan that will meet regulatory requirements and adopt recognized best practices in the field.
