Equipment Integrity Tests

​​​Equipment integrity tests (EITs) are undertaken to determine whether an underground petroleum storage system (UPSS), or a component of a storage system, is not providing full and continuous containment. ​

​The Director EPA can issue loss detection protocols under regulation 52 of the Environmental Management and Pollution Control (Underground Petroleum Storage Systems) Regulations 2020 (UPSS Regulations).

EPA has drafted a Loss Detection Protocol for Equipment Integrity Tests on Underground Petroleum Storage Systems, which is available for comment until 14 September 2020. ​
