5 common SPCC Plan violations [Conference recap]

Last week, we reported on SPCC compliance tips, a topic covered at the 17th Annual International Aboveground Storage Tank Conference & Trade Show in Orlando, Florida. This week we are reviewing another talking point, common SPCC Plan violations.

Here are five to watch out for at your facility.

  1. Inadequate cross references
  2. Inadequate facility diagram (facility and diagram don’t match, missing piping and loading areas)
  3. Lack of discussion of addressing spill trajectory
  4. Inadequate discharge notification form (quantity of discharged to water and media impacted)
  5. Missing 112.7(a) elements (the mini response plan)
