Tait Regulatory Affairs Manager Plays Critical Role in new UST Reference Manual

Brian Harmon, Tait Regulatory Affairs Manager, played a key role in authoring the newly published PEI Recommended Practice 1200.  For the past two years, Brian collaborated with a team of Underground Storage Tank experts to develop this new resource for the UST owners and operators throughout the nation.  The content of this manual is especially significant due to proposed EPA regulatory changes.  According to PEI, “the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed far-reaching regulatory changes that would require that key UST system components be periodically tested/verified to ensure their integrity and adequate performance. PEI/RP1200 provides a concise summary of general guidelines for the inspection and testing of leak detection, release prevention and overfill prevention equipment at UST facilities to complement those proposed regulatory changes.”  More information can be found at www.PEI.org/RP1200.

As part of the PEI Overfill, Leak Detection and Release Prevention Equipment Testing Committee Brian was instrumental in creating this new publication entitled Recommended Practices for the Testing and Verification of Spill, Overfill, Leak Detection and Secondary Containment Equipment at UST Facilities. It is available through the Petroleum Equipment Institute at this link.

PEI is a trade association located in Tulsa, Oklahoma with member companies located in all 50 states and more than 80 countries whose members manufacture, distribute and service petroleum marketing and liquid-handling equipment.
