Regulatory & Compliance

Government and commercial storage tanks must meet a number of local, state, and federal regulations to operate safely and legally. Read the following case study to see how Mass Tank provides “start to finish” solutions, specializing in building compliant government and commercial tanks.

The Problem

Complying with tank inspection, permitting, and management requirements varies depending on location and the local, state, and federal regulations that govern the tank application. Specific requirements are based on factors such as the specific type of tank, its size, materials stored, and location of the facility.

Common regulations associated with tanks include:

  • Design and construction standards
  • Spill prevention and control (SPPC)
  • Registration and permitting
  • Environmental regulations
  • Inspections and testing
  • Tank safety measures
  • Record keeping
  • Reporting and notification
  • Closure and decommissioning
  • Periodic tank testing

Before a tank can be operational, it must comply with all applicable requirements. Because of the complexity of these standards, Mass Tank can help customers design, build, test, inspect, maintain, and repair all aspects of the storage tank according to the regulatory standards that apply to them. Mass Tank recently helped a national laboratory fabricate a tank that had very specific standards and was intended for use in an experiment.

The Solution

Mass Tank helped the customer design, build, test, and inspect their tank according to the complex engineering standards of the scientific experiment the tank was to be used in. We worked with various technical specialists and professionals to ensure the timely resolution of compliance issues.
