Webinar on the August 2013 Revisions to the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Guidance for Regional Inspectors

In August 2013, EPA revised the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Guidance for Regional Inspectors, which was originally issued on December 2, 2005. The Guidance is designed to assist EPA inspectors in:

  • implementing the SPCC rule requirements,
  • understanding SPCC applicability, and
  • to help clarify the role of the inspector in reviewing a facility’s implementation of the performance-based provisions of the rule.

The guidance is designed to facilitate nationally consistent implementation and interpretation of the SPCC rule. It is also available to owners and operators of facilities that may be subject to the requirements of the SPCC rule, and to the general public on how EPA intends the SPCC rule to be implemented.
