Proposed Rulemaking to Amend/Adopt General Definitions & Abbreviations and Oil Spill Contingency Plans for Inland Facilities

December 29, 2017

The Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) is proposing to amend/adopt regulations regarding the General Definitions & Abbreviations and the Oil Spill Contingency Plans for Inland Facilities in sections 790 and 817.04, Title 14, California Code of Regulations. Pursuant to statutory changes created by Senate Bill (SB) 861, the proposed Contingency Plan regulations (§817.04) set forth procedures for inland facilities to prepare and submit an oil spill contingency plan to OSPR for approval. Proposed amendments to the General Definitions & Abbreviations section (§790) account for the legislative changes by Senate Bill 861, and as an opportunity to perform non-substantive textual cleanup.

The Office of Administrative Law approved emergency regulations for this purpose, however, as emergency regulations they did not go through the formal comment process. These regulations were later readopted and will expire on August 7, 2018. OSPR is now initiating this regular rulemaking action to make these emergency regulations permanent. In accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, OSPR provided notice of the proposed regulatory action to the Office of Administrative Law for publication in the California Regulatory Notice Register on December 29, 2017. The public notice begins a 45-day review process during which interested persons may comment on the proposed rulemaking.

The comment period is closed.

The current rulemaking file for this proposed action consists of the following documents:
