Spill Prevention Control and Counter Measure Plan (SPCC)

An SPCC Plan is required for any facility that has:

  • A total aboveground oil or oil product storage capacity at the facility of more than 1,320 gallons, or
  • A total underground, buried storage capacity of more than 42,000 gallons.
  • Only containers with a capacity of 55 gallons or greater are counted in the calculation of aboveground storage capacity.

Commonly overlooked is the capacity of equipment that uses oil or oil products, which must be considered as well as general storage.

Plans need to be reviewed at least every 5 years, and effective November 1, 2011, must incorporate changes made to the regulation.

Contact CDMS to help evaluate if you need a plan, need assistance in developing a plan, or need your plan certified by a Professional Engineer.
