Storage Tank Financial Assurance Forms

Storage Tank Financial Assurance Forms (Mechanisms)

  • The current forms were adopted in October 2019 and use the term 'discharges' instead of 'releases'.
  • Individual mechanisms are available separately below.
  • Documentation of financial assurance must be maintained to meet the requirements of rules 62‑761 and 62‑762, F.A.C. Completed selected parts of Form 62-761.900(3) - Financial Mechanisms for Storage Tanks - must be used to meet these financial responsibility (FR)* requirements. If kept off site this documentation shall be made available upon five business days notice by a department or county inspector.
  • As many issuing institutions need or choose to attach a Example Facility/Tank Schedule to the financial assurance instrument, we provide a fillable example form for this purpose.
  • Links to outside agencies that might be needed to verify information on Tanks financial assurance documents.
  • Instruction pages for Form 62-671.900(3)
