Oil Pollution Prevention; Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Rule-AmendmentsRuleE9-2715611/13/2009ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCYEnvironmental Protection AgencyOn December 5, 2008, EPA amended the Spill Prevention Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) rule to provide increased clarity with respect to specific regulatory requirements, to tailor requirements to particular industry sectors, and to … On December 5, 2008, EPA amended the Spill Prevention Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) rule to provide increased clarity with respect to specific regulatory requirements, to tailor requirements to particular industry sectors, and to streamline certain rule requirements. The Agency subsequently delayed the effective date of these amendments to January 14, 2010, to allow the Agency time to review the amendments to ensure that they properly reflect consideration of all relevant facts. EPA also requested public comment on the delay of the effective date and its duration, and on the December 2008 amendments. Having reviewed the record for the amendments and the additional comments, EPA has decided to make only limited changes to the amendments. With respect to the majority of the December amendments, EPA is either taking no action or providing minor technical corrections. EPA is, however, removing the following provisions in the December 2008 amendments: the exclusion of farms and oil production facilities from the loading/unloading rack requirements; the exemption for produced water containers at an oil production facility; and the alternative qualified facility eligibility criteria for an oil production facility.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/11/13/E9-27156/oil-pollution-prevention-spill-prevention-control-and-countermeasure-spcc-rule-amendmentsFR-Doc-E9-27156

The proposal would establish performance requirements and certification and labeling requirements for upholstered furniture. Manufacturers of upholstered furniture would choose one of two possible methods of compliance: They could use cover materials that are sufficiently smolder resistant to meet a cigarette ignition performance test; or they could place fire barriers that meet smoldering and open flame resistance tests between the cover fabric and interior filling materials. Manufacturers of upholstered furniture would be required to certify compliance with the standard and to comply with certain recordkeeping requirements as specified in the proposal.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2008/03/04/08-768/standard-for-the-flammability-of-residential-upholstered-furnitureFR-Doc-08-768

The Agency also is removing and reserving the SPCC requirements for animal fats and vegetable oils that are specific to onshore oil production facilities, onshore oil drilling and workover facilities, and offshore oil drilling, production, or workover facilities. Finally, the Agency is extending the SPCC compliance dates for farms. These changes significantly reduce the burden imposed on the regulated community for complying with the SPCC requirements, while maintaining protection of human health and the environment. In a separate document in this Federal Register, the Agency is proposing to extend the compliance dates for all facilities.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2006/12/26/E6-21509/oil-pollution-prevention-spill-prevention-control-and-countermeasure-plan-requirements-amendmentsFR-Doc-E6-21509

This new standard establishes performance requirements based on research conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (``NIST''). Mattresses and mattress and foundation sets (``mattress sets'') that comply with the requirements will generate a smaller size fire with a slower growth rate, thus reducing the possibility of flashover occurring. These improved mattresses should result in significant reductions in deaths and injuries associated with the risk of mattress fires. The Commission estimates that the standard could limit the size of mattress fires to the extent that 240 to 270 deaths and 1,150 to 1,330 injuries could potentially be eliminated annually. As discussed in the preamble, this means that the standard could yield lifetime net benefits of $23 to $50 per mattress or aggregate lifetime net benefits for all mattresses produced in the first year of the standard of $514 million to $1,132 million.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2006/03/15/06-2206/final-rule-standard-for-the-flammability-open-flame-of-mattress-setsFR-Doc-06-2206

The Commission currently … The Commission is proposing a flammability standard under the authority of the Flammable Fabrics Act that would address open flame ignition of mattresses and mattress and foundation sets (``mattresses/ sets''). The Commission currently has a flammability standard that addresses ignition of mattresses by cigarettes. However, that standard does not address mattress fires ignited by open flames. The proposed standard sets performance requirements based on research conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (``NIST''). Mattresses/sets that comply with the proposed requirements will generate a smaller size fire, thus reducing the possibility of flashover occurring. These improved mattresses should result in significant reductions in deaths and injuries associated with mattress fires. Due to the interaction of mattresses and bedclothes discussed herein, elsewhere in today's Federal Register the Commission is publishing an advance notice of proposed rulemaking to begin rulemaking on bedclothes.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2005/01/13/05-416/standard-for-the-flammability-open-flame-of-mattresses-and-mattressfoundation-sets-notice-ofFR-Doc-05-416

The dates affected by today's final rule are the date for a facility to amend its Plan and the date for a facility to implement that amended Plan in a manner that complies with the newly amended requirements (or, in the case of facilities becoming operational after August 16, 2002, prepare and implement a Plan that complies with the newly amended requirements). We are also amending the compliance deadline for onshore and offshore mobile facilities. In light of a recent partial settlement of litigation involving the July 2002 amendments, we are extending the compliance dates to, among other things, provide sufficient time for the regulated community to undertake the actions necessary to update (or prepare) their Plans. The final rule is also intended to alleviate the need for individual extension requests.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2004/08/11/04-18370/oil-pollution-prevention-and-response-non-transportation-related-onshore-and-offshore-facilitiesFR-Doc-04-18370
