Petroleum certification

As a petroleum filling station owner or keeper you have certain responsibilities under the Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014. To find out more, please visit the Health and Safety Executive website.

We are the Petroleum Enforcement Authority (PEA), which means we are the certifying authority for the storage of petroleum in South Yorkshire. To protect the public and the environment, petroleum is certified to ensure that it is kept and dispensed in a safe manner.

If you are storing or proposing to store petroleum for commercial or retail purposes and do not have a certificate, you must apply for one (application here). A certificate is also required for the storage of LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or Calcium Carbide.

If you intend to store petroleum you, as a certified keeper, will be required to complete a risk assessment based on DSEAR, further information on completing a DSEAR risk assessment can be found here.

Petroleum Certification Fees

The fees and charges payable in respect of applications for the granting of storage certificates under the Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014 can be found within Part 5 of the The Health and Safety and Nuclear (Fees) Regulations 2016. Please follow this link.
