Petroleum storage certificate

In Christchurch, 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 and return it to us.

How much does the certificate cost?

It depends how much petroleum you will be storing. You can choose how long a storage certificate will be valid for, between 1 and 10 years and pay for that time period.
