EPA/SWER RIN: 2050-AG22 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: National Contingency Plan Revisions To Align With the National Response Plan 
Abstract: The purpose of this regulation is to revise the National Contingency Plan (NCP) to align it with the National Response Framework (NRF). The purpose of the NCP is to provide the organizational structure and procedures for preparing for and responding to discharges of oil and releases of hazardous substances, pollutants, and contaminants (see 40 CFR 300.1). The purpose of the NRF is to provide a guide that describes how the nation conducts all-hazard response to domestic incidents. The NRF was developed by the Department of Homeland Security, in consultation with federal (including EPA), State, Tribal, local governments, first responder organizations, private sector preparedness and relief groups. Alignment of the NCP with the NRF will facilitate smooth integration of emergency response activities under the NCP with the NRF when both plans are activated for an incident. The NRF does not alter the existing authorities of Federal departments and agencies, but rather, establishes the coordinating framework to integrate the authorities of various agencies into an all-hazard approach to incident management. EPA is making another minor revision to the NCP. The descriptions of Federal agency capabilities are being updated and modifications are being made, where appropriate, to reflect the Department of Homeland Security organization.
