The US Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) requires all facilities that use, manage and store oil (1,320 gallons or more) to develop and implement Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (“SPCC”) Plans. The latest amendments to the Rule and the compliance dates were issued on November 13, 2009, which reversed some of the amendments made in December, 2008. In 2009, EPA extended the compliance deadline for the new amendments to November 10, 2010 to allow additional time for facilities to prepare, amend, and implement their SPCC Plans. The amended Rule became effective on January 14, 2010.
