UPSS Guidelines

New guidelines have been developed to assist persons responsible for a UPSS to comply with the Protection of the Environment Operations (Underground Petroleum Storage Systems) Regulation (the Regulation) which commenced on 1 September 2019.

The EPA is currently seeking feedback from UPSS operators, industry, local councils and the community on these proposed new Guidelines.  

Feedback can be provided through the EPA consultation portal from 11 September 2020  until 16 October 2020.

The current guidelines (PDF 969KB) are still available.
