}

Summary

These Discharge of Oil requirements provide a framework for determining whether an oil discharge to inland and coastal waters or adjoining shorelines should be reported to the National Response Center. Although these reporting requirements were not changed by EPA’s recent modifications of the SPCC rule, this Fact Sheet will help facilities with the Reportable Discharge History criterion associated with the qualified facility option and the oil-filled operational equipment option offered in the recent SPCC modifications.
