Final Rule: SPCC Compliance Dates
On June 19, 2009, EPA published a final rule in the Federal Register regarding the compliance dates for the December 2008 Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Rule. The date by which facilities must amend or prepare and implement their SPCC plans is now November 10, 2010. All previous compliance dates should be disregarded. The EPA feels that the extended compliance date will allow facility owners and operators the time to fully understand all of the amendments that have been made to the SPCC rule since 2002.
For more information on the SPCC ammendments that will take effect next year, please review CCI’s SPCC Presentation, however all compliance dates in the presentation should be disregarded. All compliance dates are now November 10, 2010 for all facilities affected by this rule.
