The US Energy Policy Act requires all States that receive federal grant money for their UST programs to ensure that all operators of UST systems demonstrate competency on how to comply with UST rules so environmental releases can be prevented. These new rules have created a training and registration program requirement for underground storage tank operators.
Operator training will require owners and their designated employees to undergo training to become certified UST operators. Once the deadline has passed, refuelers will not be allowed to deliver to facilities that have not met the new requirements. The type of training an operator receives depends on the job functions they perform at their facilities.

Compliance BlogTip of the month: Hire with the HIRE Act
Save money when hiring with the HIRE ACT and other tax credits. If you hire a new employee who has worked less than 40 hours in the past 60 days you, the employer, will immediately improve your cash flow since you will retain the employer portion of the Social Security tax ordinarily remitted. In addition you will receive up $1,000 tax credit for each previously unemployed worker you hire. The HIRE ACT tax incentives and credits are in addition to WOTC (Work Opportunity Tax Credits) and state hiring incentive credits.
Every first Monday, we will post a new compliance tip of the month. Come back frequently and stay compliant!
