Exemptions from the UPSS Regulation

Some operators of underground petroleum storage system (UPSS) may be exempted from meeting certain requirements of the UPSS Regulation. Details of the types of exemptions and who may be eligible for them are available in the UPSS Exemption Plan (which is also available as Appendix A of the Guidelines for implementing the UPSS Regulation).


The UPSS Regulation Exemption Plan allows for some UPSS sites, principally those outside a designated environmentally sensitive zone, to seek an exemption from installing and testing groundwater monitoring wells (Class 2).

Detailed instructions on how to obtain an exemption from the UPSS Regulation are provided in the Guidelines for implementing the UPSS Regulation.
