Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Regulations require many facilities to create plans to prevent the discharge of oil into national waters. Unlike other spill response or contingency plans that only detail the steps to be taken after a spill, SPCC Plans also focus on proactive measures that the facility will take to prevent spills and discharges.
Good housekeeping, the development of standard operating procedures and establishing preventative maintenance schedules, are considered to be "good engineering practices" under the Plan requirements.
Because even the best plans sometimes fail, being prepared for spills is also part of a complete SPCC Plan. Stocking the appropriate spill response equipment and providing the proper training for all employees are essential preparations under this regulation.
