CC-09-031: Oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) Rule – Final Amendments
The November 13, 2009, edition of the Federal Register contains final EPA amendments to the oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) rule. In January 2009, EPA delayed the effective date of the December 2008 SPCC amendments. With this recent action, EPA has now finalized the December 2008 amendments with modifications that are minor or inconsequential to the forest products industry. The rule will become effective on January 14, 2010; however, EPA has indicated that it plans to propose an extension to the November 10, 2010, compliance date for implementation of revised SPCC plans.
