California Government Code
(a) The administrator shall periodically conduct a comprehensive review of all oil spill contingency plans. The administrator shall do both of the following:
(1) Segment the state into appropriate areas as necessary.
(2) Evaluate the oil spill contingency plans for each area to determine if deficiencies exist in equipment, personnel, training, and any other area determined to be necessary, including those response resources properly authorized for cascading into the area, to ensure the best achievable protection of state waters from oil spills.
the administrator finds that deficiencies exist, the administrator shall, by the process set forth in Section 8670.31, remand any oil spill contingency plans to the originating party with recommendations for amendments necessary to ensure that the waters of the state are protected.
