Revision of E2256-19 Standard Guide for Hydraulic Integrity of New, Repaired, or Reconstructed Aboveground Storage Tank Bottoms for Petroleum Service


E2256-19 is within a periodic review. Originally approved in 2003. The last previous edition approved in 2013. The current edition was approved Jan. 1, 2019 and is in the 2023 Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 11.05.

ASTM Ballot Number: E50 (23-14) was issued to reapprove E2256 without changes. That ballot closed with 108 affirmative, 2 negative, and 133 abstaining. One negative ballot was withdrawn. The other negative is from Dennis Hollatz, the technical contact, and regards a change within a reference document (API 650) which now includes ISO Standard 9712 as an acceptable basis for qualification for personnel performing evaluation by radiography examination. This reference is useful for international users.
