Marine Transportation-Related Facility Response Plans for Hazardous Substances

Docket ID: USCG-1999-5705
Agency: Coast Guard (USCG)
Parent Agency: Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
This project would implement provisions of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) that require an owner or operator of a marine transportation-related facility transferring bulk hazardous substances to develop and operate in accordance with an approved response plan. The regulations would apply to marine transportation-related facilities that, because of their location, could cause harm to the environment by discharging a hazardous substance into or on the navigable waters or adjoining shoreline. A separate rulemaking, under RIN 1625-AA13, was developed in tandem with this rulemaking and addresses hazardous substances response plan requirements for tank vessels. This project supports the Coast Guard's broad roles and responsibilities of maritime safety and maritime stewardship by reducing the consequence of pollution incidents.
