EPA has not finalized the October 2007 Proposed amendments to the SPCC regulations. Comments to the proposed rule were due by December 14, 2007.
Under the proposed rules, Tier 1 facilities are those with no individual oil storage container with a capacity greater than 5,000 U.S. gallons up to an aggregate of 10,000 gallons. If the proposed amendments are adopted, Tier 1 qualified facilities will have the option to complete the self-certified SPCC Plan template in lieu of a full SPCC Plan. All other qualified facilities will be designated Tier II qualified facilities, and will be required to create and implement a full SPCC Plan.
A finalized copy of the template has not been released. However, the proposed template may be viewed in Appendix G in the Federal Register notice concerning the proposed amendments.
