SPCC Regulations Revised
Having reviewed the record for the 5 December 2008 amendments and the additional comments, EPA has decided to make only limited changes to the SPCC amendments. With respect to the majority of the December amendments, EPA is either taking no action or providing minor technical corrections. EPA is, however, removing the following provisions in the December 2008 amendments: the exclusion of farms and oil production facilities from the loading/unloading rack requirements; the exemption for produced water containers at an oil production facility; and the alternative qualified facility eligibility criteria for an oil production facility. This final rule is effective on January 14, 2010. POCs are Vanessa E. Principe at 202-564-7913 (principe.vanessa@epa.gov), or Mark W. Howard at 202-564-1964 (howard.markw@epa.gov), U.S. EPA, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, 20460-0002, Mail Code 5104A (Federal Register: November 13, 2009 [Rules and Regulations], Page 58783-58832).
