This code presents a model set of technical requirements to protect the environment from existing, new, or proposed storage tank systems that contain petroleum and allied petroleum products. Its primary purpose is the promotion of environmentally sound management of petroleum and allied petroleum product storage tank systems through the application of uniform performance standards throughout Canada. This code is a model set of technical requirements and only comes into effect if adopted, in whole or in part, by an authority having jurisdiction.
Where this code has been adopted, in whole or in part, by an authority having jurisdiction, it shall be subject to any restrictions or conditions added by the regulatory authority. Readers of this code are therefore advised to check with the federal, provincial, or territorial authority having jurisdiction to see whether this code applies in their area of interest. See appendix A for contact information for federal, provincial, and territorial authorities having jurisdiction.

This code has been developed in conjunction with the National Research Council, publisher of the National Fire Code of Canada NFCCto minimize the possibility of conflict between the respective contents of the two codes. While this code provides minimum requirements for the prevention of petroleum and allied petroleum product losses from storage tank systems that may lead to environmental problems primarily groundwater contaminationthe NFCC sets technical requirements for the storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids from the point of view of preventing fires xsa explosions.
In order to ensure effective application, fire officials, environmental officials, or other authorities having the jurisdiction to regulate petroleum and allied petroleum product storage tanks should be fully conversant with the technical requirements in both codes.
This is the only way to ensure that storage tanks are built, installed, operated, and removed in a manner that is acceptable from both a fire safety and environmental point of view.
This code is drafted in such a way that it may be adopted or enacted for legal use by any jurisdictional authority in Canada. A decimal numbering system is used throughout this code. The first number indicates the part of the code, the second the section within the part, the third the article within the section. An article b13 be broken down further into sentences, clauses, and subclauses, each of which is in brackets, as shown here:.
Part 1 defines terms and stipulates to what the code applies.
It includes the necessary administrative details to ensure that the technical requirements can caa applied with a minimum of difficulty. Part 2 contains the requirements for the registration and approval of storage tank systems. It includes the scope of the tank systems that are required to be registered as well as provisions regarding storage tank system identification. The design and installation of new aboveground storage tank systems is covered in part 3.
The recommendations are intended to ensure that equipment is designed and installed properly in order to minimize the possibility of leaks and spills. The design and installation of new underground storage tank systems are covered in part 4. Part 5 outlines g139 requirements for new piping systems for storage tank systems.

It includes recommendations for product transfer, design standards, and installation. The frequency and method of monitoring and leak detection for all new and existing storage tank systems are specified in part 6. The recommendations are intended to prevent or minimize the environmental impact of spills or leaks. Part 7 specifies how and when existing storage tank systems must be upgraded to be in conformance with this code.
It also defines those storage tank systems that are exempt from the upgrading requirement. Part 8 addresses the ongoing operation and maintenance of storage tank systems. The intention is to prevent product releases. When they do occur, however, the recommendations in this part are designed to help operators of storage tank systems detect, terminate, and mitigate releases as quickly as possible. Part 9 contains the requirements for the closure and withdrawal from service of storage tank systems, either temporarily or permanently.
Provisions for tank removal and disposal are provided to ensure that abandoned storage tanks do not cause environmental problems.
