Regulated premises - Underground Petroleum Storage System

An Underground Petroleum Storage System (UPSS) is an underground storage facility that holds petroleum products. This includes components such as pipes, valves and any apparatus that aids in the storage of petroleum products.

From 1 September 2019, the New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (NSW EPA) handed over the responsibilities of regulating UPSS to local councils.

You must register with Bayside Council if there is an UPSS on your premises, pay a fee, and be compliant at the time of routine inspections. 

You must also register with us if you have an existing UPSS, or plan to run, change, or decommission a system on your premises.

UPSS are subject to routine inspections, and there is a penalty for operating without registering with us.
