The Emergency Management Guide for Business & Industry was produced by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and supported by a number of private companies and associations representing business and industry.

The approaches described in this guide are recommendations, not regulations. There are no reporting requirements, nor will following these principles ensure compliance with any Federal, State or local codes or regulations that may apply to your facility.

FEMA is not a regulatory agency. Specific regulatory issues should be addressed with the appropriate agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
