NPFC Publications


NPFC has developed several publications to educate other Coast Guard units, government agencies, and private sector organizations involved in oil spill cleanup about the NPFC's mission and requirements.


The NPFC User Reference Guide (eURG) is designed to be a reference tool during an oil or hazardous materials spill incident for Coast Guard and EPA Federal On-Scene Coordinators. Most NPFC publications that deal with financial management aspects of oil spill response are included in this document.
This page lists all forms and guidance documents available for individuals, businesses (including OSROs), governments, and other organizations considering submitting an oil spill claim.
This document is designed to help the general public and other readers understand how Federal response to oil spills is funded under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA). It also describes the roles of various parties involved in or affected by an oil spill, including responsible parties and claimants.
This document summarizes the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA) as it pertains to the National Pollution Fund Center and discusses the structure of the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) and the NPFC's missions of managing its revenue sources and expenses.
The Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security have recently delivered several reports to Congress on topics relevant to the NPFC, such as the Oil Pollution Act and the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund.
