Storage Tank Financial Responsibility Rules

Financial Responsibility Rules and Related Laws

Financial assurance is required for qualifying Underground Storage Tanks (UST) and Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST). Financial responsibility rules for petroleum storage tanks were revised in January 2017, and although the general requirements are not changed from the previous versions of the rules, they now require the use of DEP financial assurance forms. Rule making workshops were held in 2018, and resultant draft revisions are available on the Storage Tank Systems Rulemaking page.
