Background

We invite interested public, local and tribal governments, and any others, to review and comment on wildlife response service provider applications submitted to us for approval. Wildlife response service providers are companies with trained personnel who are qualified to staff and manage wildlife response activities during an oil spill. An update to Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-182 became effective on January 18, 2020 and established a process for the review and approval of wildlife response service providers. Oil handling facilities, pipelines, and vessels regulated under Chapter 173-182 WAC may contract with state-approved wildlife response service providers to fulfill their oil spill contingency plan requirements.

Contract wildlife response service providers are approved through an application process and wildlife response service providers must be approved by the state in order to be cited in oil spill contingency plans. This 30 day public review and comment period is a part of the application process.
