Spills Program

Primary Response Contractors (PRC)

Primary Response Contractors (PRCs) are companies or cooperatives with equipment and personnel that respond to oil spills. To be cited by an oil spill contingency plan holder to meet planning standards (large vessels, oil handling facilities, pipelines, or railroads must have contingency plans)  the contractor must be approved by Ecology.

To be an approved PRC you must commit to: 

1. Having a process to provide twenty-four hour per day contact for spill response. WAC 173-182-800

2. Beginning mobilization efforts immediately upon notification but no longer than 1 hour from notification of a spill. WAC 173-182-800

3. Maintaining equipment in accordance with manufacturer specifications. WAC 173-182-800

4. Identifying and training staff and supervisors expected to be deployed on oil spill response tactics or used to meet the plan holder planning standards. WAC 173-182-800

5. Assisting plan holders in meeting the requirements for plans and drills. WAC 173-182-800

6. Maintaining a list of PRC response equipment on the Western Response Resource List or provide an equivalent electronic equipment list and confirm the accuracy of the list on a quarterly basis. WAC 173-182-810

7. Providing written notification to Ecology and plan holders to whom they are obligated, within twenty-four hours, of any significant change in the information reported in the approved application. WAC 173-182-820

8. Participating in drill and equipment verification programs. WAC 173-182-700
