What changes to the SPCC Rule did EPA finalize with the "Exemption for All Milk and Milk Product Containers, Associated Piping and Appurtenances" final rule?

The final rule:

  • Exempts all milk and milk product containers, associated piping and appurtenances from SPCC applicability and requirements
  • Excludes the capacity of the exempt containers, associated piping and appurtenances from a facility’s total oil storage capacity calculation to determine if the facility needs to comply with SPCC
  • Removes the compliance date requirements for the exempt containers
