Horinko, M. L. (n.d.). Equivalent Environmental Protection. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The newly amended SPCC provisions regarding bulk storage container integrity require, among other things, that each aboveground container be tested for integrity “on a regular schedule.” 40 CFR §112.8(c)(6). These regulations further provide that “you must combine visual inspection with another testing technique such as hydrostatic testing, radiographic testing, ultrasonic testing, acoustic emissions testing, or another system of non-destructive shell testing.” As you know, however, the regulations also allow deviations from this requirement where “you provide equivalent environmental protection by some other means of spill prevention, control, or countermeasure.” 40 CFR §112.7(a)(2). You have asked whether, for shop-built containers, visual inspection plus certain actions to ensure that the containers are not in contact with the soil would likely be considered to provide “equivalent environmental protection” to visual inspection plus another form of testing.
