How we help
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.

The Importance of Regular SPCC Plan Review and Updates
Periodic review and updates of your SPCC Plan is not just a legal requirement, but a crucial step in maintaining environmental safety and compliance at your facility. Changes to facility operation, equipment, personnel, or oil handling processes can potentially impact the effectiveness of existing SPCC measures. Regular updates ensure that your Plan accurately reflects the current conditions and procedures at your facility.
Every SPCC Plan needs to be reviewed at least once every five years and must be amended within six months whenever there are changes at the facility that might affect the potential for an oil spill. The amendments should reflect changes in oil storage, spill control equipment, or changes in the facility’s operation or layout. Moreover, a professional engineer must certify any technical amendments to the Plan.
RSB Environmental understands the necessity of regular reviews and updates. With our broad experience and knowledgeable team of licensed professional engineers, we ensure that your SPCC Plan remains a living document, accurately reflecting the changing needs and circumstances of your facility. Our team will help you keep your Plan current and compliant, effectively mitigating potential risks and strengthening your commitment to environmental safety and responsibility.
