Spill Management Teams
Spill Management Teams (SMT) play an integral part in OSPR's planned response to any oil spill incident. OSPR will be promulgating regulations governing SMTs, as required by AB 1197 (Limón, stats. 2017, ch. 584). In accordance with Government Code section 11346.45, OSPR will conduct a series of informal scoping meetings to solicit input from interested parties and/or those who may be subject to the new regulations.
