Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure - 40 CFR 112

The goal of the oil pollution prevention regulation in 40 CFR Part 112 is to prevent oil discharges from reaching navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines. The rule was also written to ensure effective responses to oil discharges. The rule further specifies that proactive, and not passive, measures be used to respond to oil discharges. The oil pollution regulation contains two major types of requirements: prevention requirements (SPCC rule) and Facility Response Plan (FRP) requirements. The prevention requirements in sections 112.1 through 112.7 were first promulgated in the 1973 SPCC regulation. Required under the rule is an SPCC Plan that contains measures to prevent and control oil spills, including those resulting from human operational error or equipment failures.
