NON-DOM OIL STORAGE & SUPPLY INSPECTION PAD & INSP. PAD
Q; Which pad should I use when inspecting an oil storage tank at a village church, pub, community centre, etc.?
A; as these are non-domestic locations then REGIN form PO23 should be completed.
Compiled by OHCS 07.11.2019.
Q; Why have the pads changed so much?
A; The REGIN oil pads have been completely rewritten to bring them into line with the new industry sector British Standard BS 5410 Part 2 (non-domestic liquid fuel fired systems) 2018 and Part 1 (Domestic liquid fuel fired systems) 2019.We also took this opportunity to included pre-printed generic terms and conditions for each pad so as to provide a level of clarity and protection for engineers which had not previously existed.
Q; Can I still use my old pads?
A; No. We wouldn’t recommend this as the old pads were based on showing compliance with the old withdrawn versions of the standard and would not enable engineers to show compliance with the new standards.
Q; What’s with the brown liquid droplets on the covers, is that just a marketing gimmick?
A; No, the colour brown used on the droplets on our pads is the correct BS 1710 identification colour for combustible liquids.
Q: Why do all the new pads have triplicate copy forms?
A; The white copy is to be left on site, the green copy is for the engineer and the Pink copy is for the client where they are not on site such as where the client is a landlord and the property is rented. Engineers have a duty of care both to the client (Landlord) and the occupier (tenant) using the equipment.
Q; Why do the pads now say “liquid Fuel” instead of “Oil”?
A; As the new British Standard covers the use of oil (kerosene), bio-liquids and bio-liquid/heating oil blends so do our new forms.
