|Publication Date:||1 April 2011|
Purpose of SPCC Rule
The regulation is divided into three subparts, which detail the requirements for a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan. Subpart A (§ 112.1 to §112.7) contains an applicability section, definitions, and general requirements for all facilities that are SPCC-regulated. Subpart B (§112.8 to §112.11) sets out the SPCC requirements for petroleum oil and non-petroleum oils other than animal fats and vegetable oils. Subpart C (§112.12 to §112.15) sets out the SPCC Plan requirements for animal fats, oils, and greases, fish and marine mammal oils; and oils of vegetable origin, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits, and kernels. The SPCC Plan is the foundation of EPA's oil spill prevention program.
