The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) recently published new regulations to implement the requirement for underground storage tank operator training for Petroleum Bulk Storage facilities (6 NYCRR 613-2) and Chemical Bulk Storage facilities (6 NYCRR 596-599).  Facilities with underground petroleum or chemical storage tanks that are subject to New York State and federal regulations must designate at least one Class A, one Class B, and one Class C Operator for those tanks.  Facilities must comply by no later than October 11, 2016.  To become certified operators, individuals will be required to pass an exam administered by the NYSDEC.  Successfully passing the New York exam will provide certification as a Class A or Class B Operator to operate underground petroleum and chemical storage tanks at facilities registered in New York State.  Class C Operators are not required to pass an exam and can be trained by certified New York Class A/B Operators.
