Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC)

This Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan is required to meet the requirements of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112 (40 CFR 112).

In addition to fulfilling requirements of 40 CFR 112, the SPCC Plan is used as a reference for oil storage information and testing records, as a tool to communicate practices on preventing and responding to accidental oil discharges with employees, as a guide to facility inspections, and as a resource during emergency response.

The purpose of the SPCC Plan is to describe measures implemented by an industrial facility, to prevent accidental oil discharges from occurring and to prepare them to respond in a safe, effective, and timely manner to mitigate the impacts of an accidental oil discharge.
