For full compliance with federal and state requirements—your essential guide to the control and treatment of accidental spills
When there is a critical spill, there’s not a moment to spare—the law requires quick response to contact the right agencies and officials. Compliance officers have relied on the Spill Reporting Procedures Guide since 1984 for information on how to deal quickly and accurately with accidental releases of chemicals and contaminants into the environment—and how to comply fully with federal and state hazardous waste requirements.
The 2014 Edition of the Spill Reporting Procedures Guide has been revised to reflect all significant state and federal reporting requirements and guidance on whether to respond via an “800” number, by written report, or online.
The 2014 Edition also includes new and updated forms for numerous states, including revised spill and accidental release report forms. It includes links to reporting websites, increasingly the preferred conduit for reporting spills, and discussion of expanded or changed reporting requirements in several states.
Federal and state updates to the 2014 Edition of Spill Reporting Procedures Guide include:
This Guide provides facility managers, engineers, and environmental compliance officers with the information they need to deal with chemical releases in air, land, and water. It includes the verbal and written reporting requirements for oil, hazardous substances, hazardous wastes, hazardous materials, excess air emissions, wastewater incursions, tank leaks, and SARA Title III.
In addition to covering the legal requirements, the Guide’s federal and state jurisdictional sections also contain updated emergency contact information and internet resources, including 24-hour hotline numbers; notification deadlines; jurisdictional maps and directories; sample reporting forms; and the telephone numbers and addresses of spill reporting offices, environmental protection agencies, police departments, state oil and gas commissions, and highway patrols. Numerous other changes and updates to state and federal reporting requirements and regulatory citations also are included.
Spill Reporting Procedures Guide is also available on the web! See Specifications tab for more details.
