Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Missouri has not established any state-specific oil spill prevention plan requirements that are in addition to the federal Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan rules under 40 CFR 112. However, the state requires that owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that accept and/or ship hazardous waste via railroad tank car prepare a spill prevention plan for hazardous waste that parallels the requirements and guidelines as specified in 40 CFR 112. See the national section SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN for information on the federal spill prevention requirements and the state section TSDF RESPONSIBILITIES for state requirements that apply to TSDFs.
• Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 7 has primary responsibility for the administration and enforcement of the federal SPCC Plan requirements.
