Vessel Oil Spill Plans

We prepare Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plans (SOPEP), Non-Tank Vessel Response Plans (NTVRP), in compliance with U.S. Coast Guard regulations.

There are currently myriad oil spill regulations; iWorkWise will help you sort through the different requirements to determine what you need to do.  We write plans that are specific to your vessels, make them as easy to use as possible, and guide them through the USCG approval process.

As part of our oil spill plan services, we help you monitor annual reviews, regulation changes, company changes, etc.  We respond to any Coast Guard requests and letters and assist you with any questions related to the plans and compliance.

Facility Oil Spill Plan

Facility Response Plan (FRP)
An FRP demonstrates a facility’s preparedness to respond to a worst case oil discharge.  Under the Clean Water Act, all owners/operators of oil storage facilities are required to prepare a facility-specific response plan.  This plan, to the maximum extent possible, is for responding to a “worst case discharge” of oil and to the substantial threat of such a discharge to the surrounding environment.

We write Facility Response Plans (FRPs) for submission to the USCG and EPA in compliance with their requirements.  We prepare the plans and guide them through approval process.  We help with revisions and in understanding what applies when.

Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans
New amendments to the Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) rule became effective on April 4, 2009.  The dates that owners or operators of facilities must prepare or amend their SPCC plans is still being reviewed by the EPA.  However, current rules for maintaining an SPCC plan still apply.

We prepare SPCC plans and can help you get one in place.
