When an authorized UST System Inspector arrives at a UST facility for which you are responsible, and he or she requests to inspect the UST system or to review compliance records, you are responsible to verify their identity.  

 

You should request that they produce identification verifying they are with the Department of Commerce or the local fire department.   The authorized person should be a qualified UST System Inspector (e.g. Certified Tank System Inspector).   

 

Inspections by the UST System Inspector will be conducted on a periodic basis—typically once every two years.   However, inspections may occur on a more frequent basis depending upon the outcome of an inspection of a UST system, a change in permitting for a UST system, such as upgrading equipment, replacing tanks, or other reason.
