Form 62-761.900(3) Part B

Also Needed

General Guidance

  • Calculate FR needs, Reference Manuals, EPA link and FAQs
  • DEP Forms must be used and filled out completely
  • Verify current version of form part is used ("October 2019" version if signed after 10/13/2019)
  • Verify facility and tanks at site have coverage. The following should match the state registration:
    • Facility identification number (FacID) (for facilities in Florida)
    • Facility name
    • Site address
    • Number of regulated tanks (or list of tank identification numbers)
  • Confirm "owner or operator" name is same as in if not a governmental agency or sole proprietor

Guarantee Specific Guidance

  • The "owner or operator" name identified on Part B (Guarantee) and on Part H (Standby Trust) needs to match name on Part P (Certification - C.F.R.)
  • The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) may have a title different from "CFO", such as Comptroller, Vice President of Finance, Treasurer, etc.; but the CFO title is unlikely to include the word "assistant". Other individuals may have the authority to sign, but they will be able to produce documentation demonstrating their authorization.

What to Do with Completed Forms

  • An owner or operator must maintain financial responsibility records (copies of the completed form parts with required supporting documentation) at the facility or at their business office.
  • If not kept at the facility, they shall be made available at the facility or another agreed upon location upon five business days notice by a department or county inspector.
