The Steel Tank Institute (STI) recently released an updated version of SP001 – Standard for the Inspection of Aboveground Storage Tanks. This document is the industry standard used in most SPCC Plans for inspection guidelines and integrity testing for shop-fabricated aboveground storage tanks. In a typical SPCC Plan prepared by SCS Engineers, your monthly and annual inspection forms, and tank integrity testing frequency requirements, are based on the criteria provided in SP001.
Summary of Key SPCC-related Items in the Revised SP001 Standard:
Do you need to amend your SPCC Plan because of this revised industry standard?
No. We recommend incorporating the updated inspection forms during your next SPCC Plan Amendment or 5-year renewal.
How do the changes affect the implementation of your SPCC Plan?
The inspection criteria have been simplified, and more flexibility is allowed with the revised inspection forms. This will help make your inspection process easier and of higher quality.
Need help sorting out the details of the revised standard, or have an SPCC Plan that needs amending or is due for a 5-year review?
