Spill Prevention Controls & Countermeasures

When it comes to Spill Prevention Controls & Countermeasures (SPCC), a facility is considered compliant with the SPCC rule if the facility has an aggregate aboveground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 U.S. gallons, OR a completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 U.S. gallons. This includes not only oil storage, but oil-filled equipment as well. For example, if the volume of a facility’s used-oil storage tank, or tanks, exceeds a cumulative 1,320 gallons, that operation would be required to create a plan to prevent harmful spills and pollution.
