Compliance Tool Box is a collection of documents and references all designed to help tank owners learn about and achieve compliance with the Tennessee Underground Storage Tank rules and regulations.

If you visit our website frequently you should make it a practice to go to this section as well as check the section entitled "New Rule Interpretation Memos" for recently published Rule interpretations and policy guidance documents. When the division publishes new documents it occasionally makes other distribution via the US mail, or electronic mail, but more frequently it uses the power of the Internet to disseminate information. The most recently published versions of rule interpretations, guidance documents and policy documents affecting the regulated community will be found on our website, so it would be wise to make it a habit of checking back frequently.
