Oil tank, removed from use

In accordance with section 13 of the City of Helsinki's environmental protection regulations, the container possessor or owner must empty, clean and inspect underground oil, fuel or other chemical containers that are removed from use.

The person performing the cleaning and inspection must be authorised for the inspection of chemical containers by the Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency.

A certificate of the cleaning and inspection must be provided to the Environmental Protection Unit of the Urban Environment Division (ysoposti.ymk@hel.fi). The filler and air pipes of the tanks must be removed.

If necessary, the City of Helsinki's environmental protection authority may require further reports or the removal of the tank from the soil, if the tank is damaged or there are other reasons to suspect that the chemical stored in the tank has seeped into the soil.
