UST Certified Contractors MUST Be On-Site

Unlike Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP), all underground storage tank services for both regulated and unregulated tanks must be performed by a certified individual, who works for a certified firm, working under the immediate, on-site supervision of a person certified.  NJAC 7:14B-13 and 16 outline the requirements of certified UST Contractors for both regulated and unregulated tank services, though several contractors have recently been caught without on-site certified individuals and without having their certification cards on-site.  The Rules are clear and there is no question the NJDEP is enforcing their Rules.  If you have any questions, contact Phil Brilliant, an expert in UST Certification Rules.
