PPA Member Feedback Request On Draft Amendment To USTIF Eligibility Regulations


The Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Fund (USTIF) is preparing amended eligibility regulations to help make the requirements clearer for its participants. The USTIF is considering rule amendments that:

 

  • Clarify USTIF and TIIP eligibility requirements by incorporating Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court and Supreme Court decisions; and

 

  • Require that an underground storage tank be registered under Section 503 of the Tank Act within 60 days of when a release is confirmed.

 

A copy of the draft amendment can be downloaded here: https://ustif.pa.gov/documents/10197/0/977.31_ProposedAnnex_2023-11-01.pdf/725743e3-9361-424d-9fc4-da49ae87793d
