The National Response Center has deployed a new On-Line Reporting Application. This tool will provide users of the internet the ability to easily submit incident reports to the NRC. In addition, the tool will transmit an email containing the report number back to the Reporting Party. The on-line HELP feature will assist users in all facets of the tool. We invite you to utilize the new NRC On-Line Reporting Application by clicking here.



The National Response Center (NRC) is the sole federal point of contact for reporting oil and chemical spills. If you have a spill to report, contact us via our toll-free number or check out our Web Site for additional information on reporting requirements and procedures. For those without 800 access, please contact us at 202.267.2675.  The NRC operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

If you have specific questions, send an email to the NRC Duty Officer and you should receive a reply within 24 hours.  We do not accept reports that are emailed or faxed to the NRC.  You can submit an online report by using one of our web forms located here
