Compliance Auditing

"An evaluation of compliance with Process Safety Management (PSM) and Risk Management Plan (RMP) regulations at least every three (3) years to verify that the procedures and practices developed under the standard are adequate and are being followed. Audits are executed to meet local regulatory requirements, to comply with internal company standards, and as a good business practice. In the U.S., audits are required every 3 years per OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119(o) PSM and US EPA 40 CFR 68 RMP.
