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.
• Administration and enforcement. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the federal SPCC plan requirements.
