Discharge Prevention and Response Certification
A Discharge Prevention and Response Certification (DPRC) is required by Section 376.065
Florida Statutes (F.S.) for all Terminal Facilities. According to Section 376.031
terminal facility includes any structure or equipment capable of pumping,
storing or transferring pollutants (excluding gasoline) across any water or waterfront
lands. Any individual or facility that meets these conditions would be subject to
62S-6 Pollutant Discharge

capacity of the facility.
The primary requirements are:
Access to containment boom at least five times
the length of the largest vessel docking at the terminal facility.
- Possession of a site specific contingency plan
containing the requirements set forth in Chapter 62N-16 F.A.C.
There is no charge for the certification and the certification must
be renewed annually.
