Petroleum storage systems across Canada are subject to federal or provincial regulations depending on where they are located. Tank systems located on federally owned land including first nation’s lands are regulated by the Federal Storage Tank Regulation. All other tank systems are a provincial jurisdiction and are regulated by provincial codes and regulations.

Some Provincial testing requirements include precision tank and line testing, leak detector, automatic tank gauge certification and cathodic protection testing.
