ASTM WK64788

    Withdrawal of E2681 - 13 Standard Guide for Environmental Management of Underground Storage Tank Systems Storing Hazardous Substances or Petroleum

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2681 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: E50.01 | Committee E50 | Contact Staff Manager



    Energy Policy Act of 2005; operator training; petroleum UST; tank system; underground storage tank;


    This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because ASTM E2681 was developed as a reference to multiple documents pertaining to the operation of underground storage tanks and is at the end of a 5-year review cycle. Substantial changes to Section 6: Preventive Maintenance and Inspection Plan are needed for this standard to conform with new requirements within Title 40 CFR Part 280, a federal regulation revised in 2015. There is a lack of consensus for updating this standard to reflect Environmental Protection Agency rules effective October 13, 2018. The Subcommittee Chairperson recommends the withdrawal of ASTM E1990 on October 13, 2018.
