SPCC SelfCert is a software tool that creates an EPA-required Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan.
SPCC SelfCert was created in collaboration with a global environmental engineering company. Subject matter experts in environmental engineering and environmental law were part of the team that designed the technology, the regulation compliance logic and the SPCC Plan creation process.
On November 10, 2010, certain facilites that store oil-based products in aboveground storage tanks (AST) will be able to self-certify their SPCC Plan without the assistance of a professional engineer. In general, these facilites must meet the following requirements:
All oil-based products are stored in 55 gallon containers or larger.
The total of all containers must be greater than 1,320 gallons and less than 10,000 gallons.
No single container is greater than 5,000 gallons.
The facility must not have had any spills greater than 1,000 gallons in the last 3 years and no 2 two spills greater than 42 gallons in any 12 month period.
SPCC SelfCert is a service that helps you comply with the spill prevention, control and countermeasures self-certification requirements of the Clean Water Act, 40 CFR part 112. Through a series of six steps, SPCC SelfCert collects information about your aboveground storage tanks that contain oil products. It then creates an SPCC Plan template that can be used to self-certify your facility.
SPCC SelfCert was created by Convergent Corporation, a Chicago-based boutique consulting firm that specializes in custom software products and services. For over 15 years, Convergent has been creating custom software solutions for companies like Northrop Grumman, Northwestern University, IBM, CBay, RR Donnelley, H&R Block, WGN, WPNA, Microsoft, American Express, Panasonic, Allstate, Accenture and Gatorade.
