All service stations having a specific throughput as specified in S.L. 549.52, must comply with the requirements in Schedule VI of S.L. 549.52.
The operation of service stations handling petrol, are to be covered by an Environmental Permit issued by ERA. These service stations cannot operate unless they are duly permitted. In order for ERA to permit service stations, these must be certified by an approved auditor, (REWS Competent Person in Petroleum Filling Stations / Secondary Storages of Petroleum) that they comply with the requirements for service stations above.
Applications may be submitted through the ERIS System which may be accessed from here.
