The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has extended the compliance date to November 10, 2010, for all facilities subject to the oil Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) regulations.  Farms must also be in compliance by this date.

For facilities in operation prior to August 16, 2002, these amendments do not remove any regulatory requirement for the owners or operators to maintain and implement SPCC plans in accordance with the SPCC regulations then in effect.  Such facilities are required to maintain their plans until the applicable date for revising and implementing their plans under the new amendments.
