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.
