SPCC Plans

The EPA requires a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan must be prepared by all facilities with a total aboveground oil storage capacity of greater than 1,320 gallons, or total completely buried oil storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons. This regulation establishes requirements for facilities to prevent oil spills from reaching the navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines. The rule applies to owners or operators of certain facilities that drill, produce, gather, store, process, refine, transfer, distribute, use, or consume oil.

A facility's SPCC Plan must discuss how the facility conforms with the oil spill prevention and containment procedures established for that type of facility or operation. All SPCC Plans must comply with a set of general requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 40 CFR 112.7. The SPCC Plan must be certified by a licensed professional engineer. Facilities must implement the Plan, including carrying out the spill prevention and control measures established for the type of facility or operations, such as measures for containing a spill (e.g., berms). In the event that a facility cannot implement containment measures, the facility must demonstrate that secondary containment is impracticable; conduct periodic integrity and leak testing of bulk containers and associated valves and piping; develop and incorporate a strong spill contingency plan into the SPCC Plan. In addition, facility owners or operators must conduct employee training on the contents of the SPCC Plan.
