OFTEC Inspections and How IPU Can Support
OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association) inspections are integral to ensuring your fuel storage site is compliant and protected from financial loss and reputational damage. OFTEC promotes high professional standards for technicians and businesses working in the industry and ensures systems are performing well. It also makes sure that it complies with relevant Building Regulations and manufacturer’s installation requirements.
Every site storing diesel needs an annual OFTEC inspection. The industry association governs the inspection and certification of fuel pipework, storage, and pumping systems.
Having regular OFTEC inspections leaves nothing to chance and helps to verify that all registered businesses carry out their work to a high standard. It will also help them meet all regional building regulations and industry best practices. Most importantly, it ensures safety and compliance for fuel storage facilities.
Regular OFTEC inspections are vital for preventing avoidable accidents, and grant protection against litigation if an accident does occur. IPU’s OFTEC inspection services lighten the regulatory and managerial burdens associated with storing fuel. We can not only carry out these checks for you but also help you in several ways:
- Inspections for OFTEC and associated compliance regimes
- Remedial work to improve safety and ensure regulatory approval, such as leak detection and oil tank installation
- Contingency and emergency planning
- Spill response and emergency services
Once we have revealed any structural and procedural issues that could damage your business, we remedy those issues. We can then re-certify you when we have completed the remedial actions that were identified. These can include tank cleaning, installing pipe systems or improving oil storage.
