d. Phase IV: documentation (including external reporting and follow-up written reports).
C. A good ISCP should, in addition, contain the following:
1. Designation of duties and responsibilities for specific organizations and the On-Scene
2. Facility response team composition and training, and operations center location and
systems for timely response.
4. Surveillance procedures for early detection.
5. Key installation personnel and community officials to be notified in the event of a release.
D. The ISCP must be reviewed and updated every 3 years. It must also be tested at least once a
year and amended as needed. An actual spill may be used as a test situation.
E. A suggested document for developing a spill contingency plan is FEMA-10 (Federal
Emergency Management Agency Planning Guide and Checklist for Hazardous Materials
Contingency Plans and Hazardous Materials Planning Guide).
7.14 Contingency Plan Implementation
A. Hazardous Materials Defined. The first requirement in ISCP development is that the
planners identify the hazardous materials on the facility and have a clear understanding of the
materials to which the ISCP applies. For the purpose of emergency response planning, the term
"hazardous materials" includes hazardous materials, dangerous goods, hazardous substances, and
hazardous wastes. For purposes of this section, these terms will be collectively referred to as
HAZMAT. It should be noted that these terms are defined for different purposes by different
agencies. The regulatory sources of the definitions are as follows:
1. Hazardous materials are defined by the DOT in Title 49 CFR, paragraph 171.8.
2. Dangerous goods are defined by the United Nations Recommendations of the Committee of
Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, and contained in the UN publication "Transport
of Dangerous Goods." This publication is commonly referred to as the "Orange Book."
3. Hazardous substances are defined by EPA and listed in Title 40 CFR, part 302.
4. Hazardous wastes are defined by EPA and listed in Title 40 CFR, paragraph 261.3 to 262.
