§ 245.110. Certification of installers.

 (a)  An installer certification authorizes the person to whom it is issued to conduct tank handling activities or tightness testing activities pertaining to storage tank systems or storage tank facilities in one or more of the categories in subsection (b).

 (b)  Installer certifications may be issued for the following categories:

   (1)  Underground storage tank system installation and modification {UMX}. Installation and modification of underground storage tank systems including the tank and all associated ancillary equipment, appurtenances, corrosion protection systems, structural components and foundations. This category also includes conducting preinstallation air pressure tests for underground storage tank systems, overfill prevention equipment evaluations, containment sump and spill prevention equipment testing, and release detection equipment testing.

   (2)  Underground storage tank system minor modification {UMI}. Limited to the performance of minor modifications of underground storage tank systems. This category also includes conducting overfill prevention equipment evaluations, containment sump and spill prevention equipment testing, and release detection equipment testing.

   (3)  Underground storage tank system removal {UMR}. Removal from service of underground storage tank systems.

   (4)  Underground storage tank system tightness tester {UTT}. Tightness testing activities involved in conducting and interpreting results of volumetric and nonvolumetric tests on underground storage tank systems. This category also includes containment sump and spill prevention equipment testing and release detection equipment testing.

   (5)  Aboveground manufactured metallic storage tank system installation and modification {AMMX}. Installation and modification of aboveground manufactured metallic storage tank systems, including the tank and all associated ancillary equipment, appurtenances and corrosion protection systems. This category also covers foundations, containment structures and structural components when they are designed by an engineer qualified in civil construction or when installing small aboveground UL-labeled tanks with manufacturer’s installed self-containment or diking systems.

   (6)  Aboveground nonmetallic storage tank system installation and modification {AMNX}. Installation and modification of aboveground nonmetallic storage tank systems, including the tank and all associated ancillary equipment and appurtenances. This category also covers foundations and structural components when they are designed by an engineer qualified in civil construction or as specified by the tank manufacturer.

   (7)  Aboveground manufactured storage tank system removal {AMR}. Removal from service of aboveground manufactured storage tank systems.

   (8)  Aboveground field constructed metallic storage tank installation, modification and removal {AFMX}. Installation, modification and removal of aboveground field constructed metallic storage tanks and corrosion protection systems. This category also covers the modification of tank shell components of an aboveground manufactured metallic storage tank.

   (9)  Aboveground field constructed storage tank system removal {AFR}. Removal from service of aboveground field constructed and manufactured aboveground storage tank systems.

   (10)  Aboveground storage tank system mechanical installation, modification and removal {AMEX}. Installation, modification and removal of tank related mechanical appurtenances, including valves, fill piping, suction piping, foam system piping, pumps, corrosion protection systems, release detection systems, and spill and overfill prevention systems that are components of an aboveground storage tank system.

   (11)  Aboveground storage tank system civil {ACVL}. Installation and modification of tank related structural components, including foundations, dike walls, field grading, above and below grade vaults, pump supports, pipe supports, corrosion protection systems and drainage systems associated with an aboveground storage tank system.

   (12)  Storage tank liner {TL}. Activities involved in installation or modification of internal linings for underground and aboveground storage tank systems and the evaluation of underground storage tank linings as required in §  245.422(b)(1)(ii) (relating to upgrading of existing underground storage tank systems).
