Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Notice of meeting.


On July 17, 2002 (67 FR 47042), EPA published final amendments to the SPCC rule. This rule amended an existing rule that had been in effect since 1974. This final rule was effective on August 16, 2002 and included dates by which a facility would have to amend and implement its SPCC plan. The Agency subsequently extended the compliance dates. The compliance deadline for revision and professional engineer (PE) certification of SPCC plans is August 17, 2004.

In anticipation of this August 17, 2004 deadline, EPA will hold a meeting with the regulatory community and interested stakeholders to explain Agency efforts to clarify the regulations and facilitate compliance.


EPA will hold a public meeting on March 31, 2004 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.


The meeting will be held in Washington, DC. The exact location of the meeting will be announced on the Oil Spill Program web site (​oilspill/​) or you may contact the person listed in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
