ILTA is extremely pleased to announce that the US Environmental Protection Agency today finalized its new rule expanding the use of in-service tank inspections. The final rule, published in the January 19 Federal Register and in effect immediately, allows operators of tanks regulated under the New Source Performance Standards of Subpart Kb to use the in-service inspection requirements of Subpart WW to conduct periodic inspections of internal floating roof rim seals.
