Last EPA Webinar for AGC Contractors on SPCC (Oil Spill) Inspections; Few Spots Remain
Oil Spill Inspections at Asphalt Operations on Rise
A few spots remain open for the Nov. 7 complimentary webinar that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hosting, specifically for the construction industry, on compliance with the federal Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) rule. EPA’s Oil Program Office told AGC that the agency has shifted its SPCC focus from outreach (i.e., increased awareness of the regulations) to physical inspections at individual sites/facilities to determine compliance. The regulated community should expect to see an increase in the number of SPCC compliance inspections.
AGC members have reported recent SPCC inspections at their asphalt plants. AGC has worked with EPA to schedule a series of webinars detailing how EPA intends to implement/enforce the SPCC rule nationwide. The first three sessions completely “sold out” and limited seats remain for the last program, scheduled for Nov. 7 at 12:00pm EST. The program will center on the newly revised SPCC inspector’s guide that is meant to provide a consistent national policy on SPCC-related requirements, found at 40 CFR Part 112. There will be time to ask questions directly of the head of EPA’s oil spill program, regarding what companies can expect during an inspection.
