Background and Purpose In 1994, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and the Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) of the Department of Transportation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Minerals Management Service (MMS) of the Department of the Interior, coordinated the development of the PREP Guidelines to provide guidelines for compliance with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) pollution response exercise requirements (33 U.S.C. 1321(j)). The guiding principles for PREP distinguish between internal and external exercises. Internal exercises are conducted within the planholder’s organization. External exercises extend beyond the planholder’s organization to involve other members of the response community. External exercises are separated into two categories: Area exercises, and Government-initiated, unannounced exercises. External exercises are designed to evaluate the entire pollution response mechanism in a given geographic area to ensure adequate response preparedness. A National Schedule Coordination Committee (NSCC) was established for scheduling Area exercises. The NSCC is comprised of personnel representing the four Federal regulating agencies—the USCG, EPA, MMS, and PHMSA’s Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS). Since 1994, the NSCC has published a triennial schedule of area exercises. Area exercises involve the entire response community including Federal, State, local, tribal, and non-government organizations, and industry participants; therefore, these area exercises require more extensive planning than other oil spill response exercises. The PREP Guidelines describe all of these exercises in more detail.

Background and Purpose

    In 1994, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) and the Research and 
Special Programs Administration (RSPA) of the Department of 
Transportation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the 
Minerals Management Service (MMS) of the Department of the Interior, 
coordinated the development of the PREP Guidelines to provide 
guidelines for compliance with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) 
pollution response exercise requirements (33 U.S.C. 1321(j)). The 
guiding principles for PREP distinguish between internal and external 
exercises. Internal exercises are conducted within the planholder's 
organization. External exercises extend beyond the planholder's 
organization to involve other members of the response community. 
External exercises are separated into two categories: Area exercises, 
and Government-initiated, unannounced exercises. External exercises are 
designed to evaluate the entire pollution response mechanism in a given 
geographic area to ensure adequate response preparedness.
    A National Schedule Coordination Committee (NSCC) was established 
for scheduling Area exercises. The NSCC is comprised of personnel 
representing the four Federal regulating agencies--the USCG, EPA, MMS, 
and PHMSA's Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS). Since 1994, the NSCC has 
published a triennial schedule of area exercises. Area exercises 
involve the entire response community including Federal, State, local, 
tribal, and non-government organizations, and industry participants; 
therefore, these area exercises require more extensive planning than 
other oil spill response exercises. The PREP Guidelines describe all of 
these exercises in more detail.
