The SPCC program was developed by EPA and calls for farmers and retail facilities to have an oil spill prevention plan, or an SPCC Plan, in place by November 10, 2011. ARA has been working closely with EPA to help ensure that information regarding the SPCC rules is communicated to the agriculture industry. As a result of these efforts, ARA is the only organization that currently has permission from EPA to distribute reprints of the brochure with ARA’s logo and contact information listed on the back. EPA is also directing farmers and others in the industry to the ARA website to download the brochure.
