What Are “Multisector” Inspections?

SPCC-regulated facilities are subject to EPA inspections. EPA performs hundreds of SPCC inspections annually. A complete and implemented SPCC Plan at a facility is essential to a successful inspection. Compliance with SPCC regulations is more than environmental protection. It’s also necessary to prevent penalties that could cost up to $37,500 per day.

Inspectors who come to your facility for a particular purpose may be armed with a “checklist” and have the authority to ask about other activities in your business that may be regulated. The inspector may be with the federal EPA, a state agency, or local government. Therefore, not only is it necessary to have your SPCC Plan in compliance but you may be required to share other information with the inspector.
