Registration and Fees

All underground storage tank (UST) systems located in the Commonwealth must be registered with the UST Branch unless the tank system is exempt from UST regulations. If you own a UST system that is not exempt, you must complete, sign and submit the DEP 7112 UST Facility Registration Form. Information submitted on this form is used for determining important items including the following:

  • Ownership of a UST System
  • Financial Responsibility
  • Eligibility to participate in the Petroleum Storage Tank Environmental Assurance Fund (PSTEAF)

Once received by the UST Branch, the registration form will be reviewed for completeness. If the information is complete and the owner or operator (applicant) is eligible to participate in the PSTEAF, the UST Branch will issue a DEP7113 Certificate of Registration and Reimbursement Eligibility Form (CORRE). 


Change in ownership of a UST system requires the completion of a new DEP7112 UST Facility Registration Form. In addition, a deed or other mutually executed legal document must be submitted to support the sale of the UST system.


Annual tank fees are assessed for each UST that contained product after July 1, 1990. A $30 annual tank fee is assessed for each tank on July 1 every year.


Please make checks for annual tank fees payable to:
