The amendments clarify regulatory requirements, tailor requirements to particular industry sectors, and streamline certain requirements for a facility owner or operator subject to the rule. This rulemaking marks the completion of the SPCC action, which was proposed on Oct. 15, 2007, finalized on Dec. 5, 2008, and for which the agency requested public comments again on Feb. 3, 2009.
The amendments do not remove any regulatory requirement for owners or operators of facilities in operation before Aug. 16, 2002, to develop, implement and maintain an SPCC plan in accordance with the SPCC regulations then in effect. Such facilities continue to be required to maintain their plans during the interim until the applicable date for revising and implementing their plans under the new amendments.
