Spill Pallet - UK Legislation

UK Legislation

In the UK, you cannot store a container of oil or fuel outside unless it is bunded in a secondary containment item (Oil Storage Regulations 2001). This means that if the container of oil leaks, it will be contained within the bund. The secondary containment item must be able to hold 110% of the largest container above.For further information on Legislation and Regulations

Therefore if a person were to try to store 4 x 205 litres drums on the sump pallet, the sump pallet must be able to hold 225.5 litres of oil.

Although there are no laws in the UK stating that a sump pallet must hold 110% of the largest container upon it, it is still considered good practice to do so.

Famous quotes containing the word legislation:

    But the wise know that foolish legislation is a rope of sand, which perishes in the twisting; that the State must follow, and not lead the character and progress of the citizen; the strongest usurper is quickly got rid of; and they only who build on Ideas, build for eternity; and that the form of government which prevails, is the expression of what cultivation exists in the population which permits it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
