On June 8, 2020, the Safety Codes Council assumed responsibility for services related to storage tank management. These services are administered by the Alberta Safety Codes Authority (ASCA) and include:
- Permitting in areas unaccredited in Part 4 of the National Fire Code - 2019 Alberta Edition.
- Inspections of newly permitted flammable and combustible storage tank systems installations or alterations in unaccredited areas of the province.
- Routine and follow-up inspections of existing flammable and combustible storage tank systems in unaccredited areas.
- Overseeing spill/incident reporting requirements for tank operators.
Municipalities that are accredited in Part 4 of the NFC(AE) will continue administering related permitting and inspections per their QMP.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has issued a STANDATA related to the transition of these services. You can read this
