Description Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations that became effective October 1, 2012, require mandatory training for the three distinct classes of UST operators at each facility. All current operators should have been designated, trained and certified by December 31, 2012. After that date, new operators must be trained as follows: Class A and Class B - within 60 days of assuming duties. Class C - before assuming duties. This focus sheet provides more details on that training.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
