Event description
EPA Office of Emergency Management Introduction to Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Regulation (SPCC) Webinar

About this event


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a free training webinar on the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Rule for federal facilities. This training is designed to allow federal facility personnel and other environmental professionals the opportunity to learn about the SPCC requirements, the inspection process, and common violations. The training will assist federal facilities to maintain and/or improve compliance with SPCC requirements. The objective of this training is to assist federal facilities with the implementation of their SPCC programs designed to prevent oil discharges from impacting navigable waters. The training is targeted for facilities with oil: storage, processing, refining, transferring, and activities or equipment using/consuming oil and oil products. The course will provide an SPCC 101 overview, a “deeper dive” into the SPCC rules, their applicability and requirements (e.g. containment, tank integrity, plan updates, etc.) for federal facility operators and certifying Professional Engineers (PEs). The US EPA SPCC inspection process and expectations will be discussed. An in-depth pictorial review of typical noncompliance found during EPA inspections will be provided. The webinar will conclude with a question-and-answer session. Additionally, please submit questions prior to the training so that the presenters can research answers in advance. Training will be conducted by Mark Howard, the EPA National SPCC Subject Mater Expert (SME) located in the US EPA Headquarters, Office of Emergency Management (Washington DC) and Joe Canzano, US EPA SPCC inspector, located in EPA Region 1.
