On July 17th, the EPA published final rule revisions for all SPCC and Facility Response Plans. The final rule:

  • Expands the scope of the rule to conform with the expanded jurisdiction in the amended Clean Water Act
  • Includes new subparts for various classes of oil
  • Revises applicability of the regulation
  • Amends several requirements for completing SPCC Plans
  • Clarifies storage threshold quantity factors
  • Revises several definitions
  • Revises the discharge reporting thresholds and reporting requirements
  • Revises the review period frequency for SPCC Plans
  • Adds new integrity testing and new equipment design requirements
  • Revises employee training requirements.

RCP has prepared a document that highlights the changes from the previous version of the rule. There are 8 definitions from the original rule that were unchanged. Other than that, EVERY PARAGRAPH was changed in some way.. If you would like to recieve a copy of the document, please request one via email at cbfoley@your-rcp.com
