Tank users, tank fabricators, and tank regulators are needed to serve on the Steel Tank Institute’s Standards Review Committee.

The purpose of the committee is to review and make recommendations for changes to STI Standards involving inspection and repair of shop-fabricated ASTs. Currently, these standards are STI SP001, Standard for the Inspection of Aboveground Storage Tanks; and STI SP031, Repair of Shop-Fabricated ASTs.

It is expected that revised SP001 and SP031 standards will be published by the end of 2016.
