Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The state has adopted the 2003 versions of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Codes 30 and 30A and the 2006 International Fire Code, which are applicable to aboveground storage tanks (ASTs). In addition, TN OSH Act regulations define some requirements for ASTs (consult the TN OSH Act regulations adopting federal flammable and combustible liquids standards under 29 CFR 1910). In addition, certain ASTs must meet federal Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements. See the national sections ABOVEGROUND STORAGE TANKS and SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN for more information.

Administration and enforcement. The State Fire Marshal's Office and TOSHA administer and enforce the AST regulations in Tennessee. Local fire and codes departments may enforce additional county and municipal requirements.
