Underground Storage Tank Regulation Review

The Underground Storage Tank (UST) Regulation Review course is a one-day program designed to provide an inclusive summary of all existing UTS requirements including New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) new Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) program. The NJDEP regulates UST and requires the professionals who work on them to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. The certifications for all other categories of UST services (i.e., installation, closure, tank testing, and corrosion protection) require the refresher course. Find out more information about certification requirements or the the UST rule N.J.A.C. 7:14B-16.
