The 2001 edition of this standard regulates the storage and handling of gasoline and associated products at bulk plants, marinas, retail outlets and private outlets from a safety perspective. In 2007 revisions were made to the environmental section of this standard to proactively identify, investigate and remediate environmental impacts. These changes outline the responsibilities of affected parties -- such as the owner or operator of the property, facility or storage tank system -- to submit an environmental assessment report when removing or replacing underground or above ground tanks.
This TSSA publication is a consolidation of the following documents, housed in a 3-ring binder and available in hardcopy only:
- Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000
- Ontario Regulation 216/01, Certification of Petroleum Equipment Mechanics

- Liquid Fuels Handling Code 2007
This Code applies to gasoline, other petroleum products (not including wax and asphalt), and other liquid products used as fuel.
