New Drills and Exercise Regulations

On April 1, 2014, new California regulations were implemented regarding Drills and Exercises. There are specific objectives tailored to the type of plan holder. Tank vessels, nontank vessels, and marine facilities have a group of objectives. Small marine fueling facilities, mobile transfer units and vessels carrying oil as secondary cargo have a separate set of objectives. Equipment deployment drills now have 5 specific objectives to meet and will only be required by the State annually if these objectives are met during the first 6 months of the year.

The link opens in new tab or windowDrills & Exercises Evaluation Guidance Manual (PDF) is a reference document assembled to provide direction and insight for OSPR staff and the regulated industry to meet OSPR drill requirements. It contains a description of types of exercises, describes the exercise evaluation process, PREP objectives and an interface between PREP and ICS structure. The use of this manual is not required for drills and exercises in California. Rather, it is intended to enhance the experience of participants and evaluators. Additional beneficial comments are welcome and may be submitted to OSPR drill coordinators for insertion into future revisions.
