Spill Prevention Control Countermeasure (SPCC)
Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC)
A Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan is required by the EPA under Section 40 CFR 112.7 at any facility with oil storage capacity exceeding 1,320 gallons. This could include facilities such as electrical power generators, manufacturing, refineries, oil production facilities, including tank batteries, among others. There are three classifications of the SPCC plan: Tier 1, Tier 2 and Professional Engineer (P.E.) Certified Plans. Generally, Tier 1 and 2 plans may not require a site visit but a P.E. Certified Plan does require a site visit from the Professional Engineer or his representative.
