Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas does not have a counterpart to the federal SPCC plan. However, if a hazardous waste facility owner or operator has already prepared an SPCC plan, or some other emergency or contingency plan, state-specific hazardous waste management provisions must be included.

Some aboveground storage tank sites are also required to develop and implement SPCC plans. In addition, used oil transporters in the state are subject to the federal SPCC plan requirements.

Administration and enforcement. EPA is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the federal SPCC plan requirements.
