Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Guidance for Regional Inspectors - Chapter 4

Chapter 4 describes the various secondary containment requirements and demonstrates how these requirements apply to specific equipment and activities at an SPCC-regulated facility. This chapter also discusses:

  • the impracticability determination provision of the rule,
  • the additional requirements that accompany an impracticability determination, and
  • the documentation needed to support such a determination.

The role of the EPA inspector in reviewing and evaluating secondary containment requirements and impracticability determinations is also discussed.
