The National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program (NPREP) was developed to establish a workable exercise program that meets the intent of section 4202(a) of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90). The NPREP was designed to provide a mechanism for compliance with the exercise requirements, while being economically feasible for the Government and the oil industry to adopt and sustain. NPREP is a unified Federal effort that satisfies the exercise requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE). Completion of the exercises described in the NPREP Guidelines is one option for maintaining compliance with OPA 90‐mandated Federal oil pollution response exercise requirements.
