Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) is a term used to refer to compliance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SPCC rule. The rule mandates that an SPCC Plan be developed and, in most cases, certified by a Professional Engineer (P.E.) for facilities that have the potential to discharge oil. In addition, secondary containment is required for most oil filled equipment, tanks, and drums. With few exceptions, the rule applies to all facilities that have oil above a certain threshold. Oil includes petroleum and non-petroleum products.
