Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Inspection Requirements
January 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CST$150
The inspection requirements of the SPCC rule are designed to detect oil leaks, spills, or other potential integrity or structural issues before they can result in a discharge of oil to navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines.
Regularly scheduled inspections, evaluations, and testing of bulk oil storage containers by qualified personnel are critical parts of discharge prevention.
A container integrity inspection and/or testing program may involve one or more of the following: an external visual inspection of containers, foundations, and supports; non-destructive testing (examination) to evaluate integrity of certain containers; and additional evaluations, as needed, to assess the containers’ fitness for continued service.
The type of inspection program and its scope will depend on site specific condition and the application of good engineering practices and this can be accomplished by following applicable industry standards.
