Frequent Questions

Does the Exemption for All Milk and Milk Product Containers, Associated Piping and Appurtenances only address milk and milk products?

Yes. This rulemaking does not exempt any other non-petroleum or petroleum based oil from SPCC requirements. EPA developed this rule for milk and milk products because they are subject to certain specific construction and sanitation standards and requirements that also serve to prevent discharges to waters of the U.S.
