Your Bunded Petrol Tanks and The Law
When it comes to the legalities surrounding the on-site storage of petrol, it can seem a bit of a daunting prospect trying to comply with all the various conditions required by the Petroleum Enforcement Officers and all the other legal and health and safety requirements.
Fortunately, Fuelsafe UK has a number of years of experience building and installing above ground petrol tanks and we are able to advise and guide all our customers from the licensing process to other issues such as siting, safety and operation.
A petroleum certificate may be required if you wish to store more than 20 litres of petroleum spirit. This can be obtained from your local area Petroleum Enforcement Officer who usually operates through the Local Authority Trading Standards Office or Fire Service.
Our petrol tanks have been designed in close consultation with Petroleum Enforcement Officers and meet all necessary legislation and safety requirements so a site visit may not always be necessary.
All bunded tanks should be sited a minimum of 2 metres from site boundaries, buildings, process areas, 3 metres from doors, plain glazed windows or other openings or means of escape and 4 meters from any fixed sources of ignition and electrical terminations not housed in an ATEX approved endpoint.
If require advice on the positioning of your tank, please feel free to contact us.
All containers must be clearly and correctly labelled so people are aware of their contents and hazards. All containers must be marked or labelled in a legible and indelible form with the words ‘PETROL’ and ‘HIGHLY FLAMMABLE’
