Subtitle I -- Regulation of Underground Storage Tanks

Subtitle I is part of the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) passed in 1984. These amendments to the Resources Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976 include requirements for tank notification, interim prohibition, new tank standards, reporting and record keeping for existing tanks, corrective action, financial responsibility, compliance monitoring and enforcement, and approval of State programs. The law also required EPA to develop a comprehensive program for the regulation of UST systems "as may be necessary to protect human health and the environment."

The text of Subtitle I is available from the Government Printing Office. For legal purposes you should always refer to a printed copy produced by the Government Printing Office (GPO). The relevant sections are 40 CFR 280.200 - 280.230 & 281.39.
