Review Existing Spill Plans For FREE & Identify Problems

Basic plan elements are often missing which creates a red flag for regulators.

5 Important Questions To Determine If Your Spill Plan Is Updated

  1. Federal Changes: Does your existing plan comply with the new EPA  regulations?  See SPCC Requirements or call our resource center now for info.
  2. New State Requirements: Is your existing plan in compliance with any new state SPCC requirements?  We can help.
  3. Regional Changes: In some states, local jurisdictions & fire codes are updating their spill plan rules as well.   We can help with this too!
  4. Facility Transfer Operations: If you own this type of facility, there are strict testing requirements.  We can help you update your plan to reflect these changes.
  5. Breakout Tanks along pipelines: Spill plans covering these tanks need to have stricter testing requirements as well as independent evaluations.   We can make this easy for you to understand.

It Only Takes One Missing Part To Get A Big Fine!

The best way for you to get on top of these changes is to review your existing plan.  After reviewing many spills plans, we discovered many plans are still not compliant with current regulations. Unfortunately, it only takes one missing element to get a $32,000 fine.  And that’s the amount per violation!

Here’s how it works:
  1. Submit your plan.
  2. Fax, email or mail us the document.  It doesn’t matter.
  3. Call us or we’ll call you after receiving  the plan.
  4. Our spill plan compliance team is a valuable resource of knowledge.  Use them!
  5. Get help with any facility in any jurisdiction across all 50 states.

Do It Yourself Plans Are Simple But Risky!

8 Critical factors to consider when creating your own spill plan

  1. Are you sure your facility is allowed to have a do-it-yourself template plan? Read SPCC regulations to make sure.
  2. Are you okay with signing off & being accountable to the EPA that you understand all the requirements of 40 CFR part 112, without further consultation?
  3. Can you certify under law that the inspections required for each above ground tank are performed daily, monthly & annually?  This means that inspections and test results must be maintained on-site.  It also requires inspection procedures to be written in accordance with industry standards.   Are you able to keep track of these records?
  4. Are you aware that self-certified plans do not allow for deviations in testing & inspection protocols?  If the standards used at your facility deviate from this, only a professional engineer or regional administrator can approve the deviation.
  5. Do you know what a commitment plan is?  Are you prepared to write one in accordance with 40 CFR part 112?
  6. Did you know secondary containment is the most critical part of every SPCC plan?  How will you know what the secondary containment can hold?  Are you able to calculate if your secondary containment is adequate and meets the regulation?
  7. Many states will not recognize self certified spill plans.   Contact us now to find out your state is one of them.
