The PTMAA Has Government of Alberta Delegated Authority
The Petroleum Tank Management Association of Alberta (PTMAA) is a not-for-profit society registered in the Province of Alberta which represents storage tank owners and groups that have an interest in storage tank management. The PTMAA has a mandate to promote the safe management of petroleum storage tanks in Alberta and enhance the protection of human life, health and the environment.
The Minister of Alberta Municipal Affairs has formally recognized the PTMAA and acknowledged that its mandate is in keeping with the goals of the department with respect to regulation of tank systems and sites in Alberta.
To accomplish this mandate, the PTMAA has been delegated authority for administration of the Alberta Fire Code as it relates to storage system construction, registration, upgrading, testing, closure, maintenance and operation standards.
The delegation does not replace immediate, emergency incident notification that informs fire or emergency response departments in the event of a leak, spill or emergency situation.
