Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) is quickly becoming an audit favorite of the regulatory agencies. Enforcement actions have increased against businesses out of compliance with spill prevention controls inthe last year. There are many industrial and commercial activities for which the State and Federal government will require a SPCC.

Who is subject to the SPCC Rule?

The SPCC Rule applies to owners or operators of non-transportation-related facilities that:

  • Drill, produce, store, process, refine, transfer, distribute, use, or consume oil or oil products; and
  • Have above ground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 US gallons, or completely buried oil storage capacity greater than 42,000 US gallons; and
  • Could reasonably be expected to discharge oil to US navigable waters or adjoining shorelines.

Some examples of typically regulated facilities are: oil refining and storage facilities, oil drilling and production facilities, oil (including animal fat, vegetable oil, petroleum) storage facilities, railroad car and truck oil tankers and their loading areas and loading equipment (within the confines of non-transportation related facilities, agricultural facilities, airports), and some waste treatment facilities.
