EPA Extension for SPCC Compliance Dates

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a Final Rule to extend the dates by which facilities must prepare or amend Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans, and implement those Plans. Under 40 CFR §112.3, this action extends the SPCC compliance dates for all facilities until July 1, 2009.

This action allows the EPA time to promulgate further revisions to the SPCC rule before owners and operators are required to prepare or amend, and implement their SPCC Plans. EPA expects to propose further revisions to the SPCC rule later this year.
