Here's our latest post! Find out if your facility needs to comply with SPCC regulations and how to become compliant to avoid fines and penalties.
Oil Spill Prevention and Compliance: Does the SPCC Rule Apply to Your Facility?
To prevent oil spills both large and small, the Environmental Protection Agency, designed an oil spill protection program, which includes the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulations.
Some facilities make the mistake of believing they don't store enough oil to qualify or aren't close enough to a waterway to cause concern. For instance, if your building has a backup power generator, the fuel tank alone may be large enough to subject your facility to SPCC regulations.
Failing to comply can result in hefty fines and penalties. So, how do you know if the SPCC rule applies to your facility? And what can you do to become compliant?
