The National Response Center has deployed an On-Line Reporting Tool. This tool provides 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 NRC On-Line Reporting Tool by clicking here.

On-Line Reporting Tool 


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 relating to the mission of the NRC, we encourage you to send an email to the NRC Duty Officer and you will receive a reply within 24 hours.  Unless otherwise specified in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations,  the NRC does not accept reports that are emailed or faxed. You can submit an online report by using the On-Line Reporting Tool located under the Services tab above.
