Additional Information:

Please Note: The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulates Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and requires the professionals who work on them to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. When a person has notified the NJDEP of a discharge from an UST on or after November 4, 2009, that person must retain a LSRP when addressing regulated USTs. LSRPs may work on unregulated USTs (remediation or otherwise), but LSRPs are not required to be hired to remediate discharges from unregulated USTs. Certified Subsurface Evaluators may still be retained to remediate discharges from unregulated USTs without the supervision of a LSRP. The certifications for all other categories of UST services (i.e., installation, closure, tank testing, and corrosion protection) still require the refresher course. The person responsible for conducting the remediation of a discharge from an unregulated UST who uses a Certified Subsurface Evaluator to remediate that discharge is required to employ an individual working for a business firm certified in the category of UST subsurface evaluation pursuant to the UST rules at N.J.A.C. 7:14B-16.

Anyone working on USTs needs a good understanding of the applicable regulations and guidance, especially tank owners, consultants, engineers, contractors, health officers, geologists, soil scientists and attorneys. If you are renewing your certification, you must take a NJDEP-certified course within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.
