RP1200: TESTING AND VERIFICATION
“PEI put together a diverse group of UST testers, installers,
owners and regulatory of;cials with many years of experience to
work on developing the best practices found in PEI/RP1200,”
said Chairman Edward S. Kubinsky Jr., of Crompco LLC. “This
document will provide guidance for service providers on how
to perform all of the new routine tests and inspections on UST
systems to help ensure compliance with these revised regula-
tions and, more important, further protect our environment for
generations to come.”
The 2015 federal tank rule requires tank owners and
operators to test spill prevention and over;ll prevention
equipment at least once every three years.
For both types of equipment, the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) determined that procedures in
PEI/RP1200: Recommended Practices for the Testing and
Veri;cation of Spill, Over;ll, Leak Detection and Secondary
Containment Equipment at UST Facilities may be used to
meet the 2015 federal requirements.
The PEI Over;ll, Release Detection and Release Prevention
Equipment Testing Committee is responsible for drafting
RP1200. For the 2017 edition, the committee addressed
recommendations from the RP900 committee that 24 testing
and veri;cation matters previously included in RP900 be
incorporated into RP1200. The committee accepted most of
those recommendations, and the additions contributed to ;ve
more pages in PEI/RP1200-17 than were in the 2011 version.
The RP1200 committee also accepted suggestions from
stakeholders during the public comment period. One of the
RP1200 committee’s biggest decisions was not a change but
