Federal Law, 40 CFR 112 requires that all owners of aboveground storage tanks in oil service must prepare and implement a Spill Prevention, Containment and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan by November 10, 2011. Under many common circumstances, SPCC plans must be prepared under the supervision of a registered professional engineer. Course authors Joey Barnes, P.E. and John G. Dzwonczyk, P.E., C.F.P.S. have prepared over 200 SPCC plans themselves, and have developed a simple model for producing them using an online system that captures site specific data and formats it into a user-friendly, compliant product.

This course gives a thorough treatment of the requirements of SPCC plans, provides resource material and instructions on how owners and engineers can use the online system to simplify plan preparation while meeting the complex requirements established by the EPA's rules.
