Storage Tank Financial Responsibility Rules and Related Laws

Financial Responsibility Rules and Related Laws

Financial assurance is required for qualifying Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs). Financial responsibility rules for petroleum storage tanks were revised in 2017 to require financial institutions to use DEP forms when providing financial assurance to tank owners.  

Another Rulemaking process has been completed.  While no consequential changes were made to the forms, they were changed slightly, and these new forms will need to be used. The current form effective date is June 2023.
