    Proposed Rulemaking for Drills and Exercises for Inland Facilities

    December 29, 2017

    The Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) is proposing to adopt regulations regarding Drills and Exercises in section 820.02, Title 14, California Code of Regulations. Pursuant to statutory changes created by Senate Bill (SB) 861, the proposed Drills and Exercises regulations set forth requirements for inland facilities to initiate and participate in tabletop exercises and equipment deployment drills to prepare for oil spills into state waters.

    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:
