Petroleum storage certificates

In Dorset, Trading Standards are responsible for making sure sites where petrol is delivered, stored and dispensed are safe.

We must be sure that you have taken precautions to reduce risks and that the petroleum is being stored correctly.

If you want to store petroleum you must apply for a Petroleum Storage Certificate.

Fill out the application for a Petroleum Storage Certificate (word, 41kb) (opens in a new window) and return it to us.

How much does the certificate cost?

It depends how much petroleum you will be storing. For an up to date list of fees please see the Trading Standards 2017/18 Fee Schedule (pdf, 238kb) (opens in a new window)

You can choose how long a storage certificate will be valid for, between one and ten years and pay for that time period.
