Determine Jurisdiction / Determine Jurisdictional Boundaries

Not sure where your facility falls? There are several agencies that have jurisdiction on Oil Spill / Oil Spill Prevention Planning, Training and Drills. The Compliance Group experts can ensure your compliance by first determining which agency(s) have jurisdiction over your facility.

Develop / Revise Plan

Each plan has specific requirements, and/or specific formats they require you to follow.  In the case of multiple agency jurisdictions, The Compliance Group can develop an Integrated Contingency Plan (with cross references) for each specific agency to speed up a regulatory audit.

Outline Inspection Frequencies

Several agencies identify “periodic” inspections that must be conducted at your facility.  Our staff can ensure your compliance by laying out inspection frequencies specific for each of your facilities.  Factors affecting frequencies depend on population density, bulk storage capacity, containment dike structure and/or proximity to sensitive areas.  Our mapping department can assist in determinations.
