US EPA Extends SPCC Rule Deadline

Facilities subject to Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements have more time to amend their programs. On June 11, 2009, EPA again extended the compliance date for compliance with the federal "SPCC Rule". Facilities subject to the SPCC Rule now have until to November 10, 2010 to come into either amend their existing SPCC Plan or prepare an inital Plan, if they are newly subject to the Rule.

Facilities must amend or prepare, and implement SPCC Plans by the compliance date in accordance with revisions to the SPCC rule promulgated since 2002. Farms that are also subject to the Rule must also amend or prepare their SPCC Plans, and implement those Plans by the same date.
