UST Compliance Management

One of the least understood regulatory requirements by UST operators is the necessity for regular, periodic inspections of UST facilities.

This requirement stems from the Energy Act of 2005, which also established training and certification standards for Class A, B and C operators. What many operators don't realize about this regulation is that most of their facilities likely must be visually inspected, by a qualified inspector, on a regular, periodic basis – and that hard-copy proof of those inspections must be available to regulatory inspectors at every site, upon request.

Typically these inspections are required to include things like:

  • Spill prevention equipment
  • Sumps and dispenser cabinets
  • Monitoring observation wells
  • Cathodic protection equipment
  • Release detection equipment
  • Thorough review of on-site records
  • Exception reporting – actual reports & management process
  • And sometimes more...

Inspections generally must be performed by a certified Class A or B Operator, either in-house or by a qualified third-party (in most states). Get a quote or moe information. Specific documentation must also be maintained and available at the facility, including not only inspection records, but also such documents as maintenance records, required test results, UST registrations, leak detection results, and more.

Utilizing our exceptional knowledge of local, state and federal UST regulations, Tanknology provides these required inspection services to many UST operators across the country. We help ensure consistent compliance with all requirements (which can vary substantially across the country), avoiding fines and penalties which can range from Notice of Violations (NOVs), to monetary fines, to red tags – and in extreme situations civil or criminal action.

As important, our monthly inspection program helps you identify and fix small problems while they're still minor maintenance issues – instead of large environmental problems.
