(1) This chapter establishes minimum standards for safe oil transfers to meet a zero spill goal established by the legislature. This chapter emphasizes:
(a) Using a scaled approach that sets standards for safe oil transfers to protect people and the environment;
(b) That it is the obligation of vessel and facility owners and operators to adopt company policies that improve the safety of oil transfers; and
(c) Minimizing the size and impacts of those oil spills which do occur.
(2) A second purpose of this chapter is the further implementation of chapter 88.46 RCW to regulate the transfer of oil on or over waters of the state.
