Petroleum Certification is required for premises that dispense petrol on both retail and non-retail sites.
Petroleum Enforcement Authorities (PEA) is responsible for enforcing the Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014 and enforces the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations at workplaces.
A PEA is responsible for issuing either a petroleum storage certificate for dispensing premises or a licence to store petrol at other types of premises, eg private homes.
Dispensing petrol means the manual or electrical pumping of petrol from a fixed storage tank into the fuel tank of a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, ie retail and non-retail petrol filling stations.
At those premises where there may be dispensing of petrol into containers, such activity is considered ancillary and not of the scale intended to be covered by Part 2 of the regulations
If a workplace does not dispense the Petroleum Consolidation Regulations do not apply (DSEAR only) eg can storage/tank to jerry cans etc.
Please note, a workplace may have over 275 litres but unless dispensing then they do not need certification or a licence.
The regulations do not apply to a workplace vehicle engine test bed, which does not need a petroleum storage certificate.
