SPCC Rule Delayed
USEPA has delayed the effective date of the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Rules until January 14, 2010. In addition, they have also substantially simplified the SPCC rules for facilities with no individual tank of 5,000 gallons or more and that do not exceed 10,000 gallons of oil products at the facility. The Fertilizer Institute and the Asmark Institute are working directly with USEPA to finalize a web based compliance program for ag retailers, which will be called mySPCC. The goal is to work with USEPA on this tool and gain their approval for its use, similar to the approval USEPA has given to the myRMP tool.
