After a lengthy delay, characterized by some as "absurd," the EPA's 2002 amendments to the Oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) rules look like they will finally go into effect for most of the regulatory community on November 11, 2011. Generally, the SPCC regulations require the preparation and implementation of a plan to prevent discharges of oil into navigable waters and to contain such discharges if they occur. With substantial penalties for violations of the SPCC regulations and for oil spills, noncompliance can be very costly. A wide range of businesses are subject to the SPCC regulations, including wind power, oil production and exploration, farms, ranches, restaurants, office buildings, electrical utilities, aviation, dairies, automotive services, forestry, universities, hospitals, construction, mining and manufacturing.
