Operating

There are 2 types of Operating Permits: Premise & Vehicle.

A Premise Operating Permit is required for every location (including private residences & commercial buildings) that has dangerous substance storage of 250 imperial gallons or greater.

Vehicle Operating Permits are required for every vehicle that is used to transport dangerous substances, regardless of the quantity of fuel the vehicle transports and this includes vehicles which have been modified to transport any dangerous substance as cargo.

Dangerous substances include petroleum, petroleum products, flammable liquid gas (e.g. propane), hazardous production material, flammable liquid (e.g. gasoline), combustible liquid (e.g. diesel), compressed gas, flammable gas, highly volatile liquid and hazardous industrial gases. 

The operator of regulated premises or vehicle shall not operate or occupy or cause such regulated premises or vehicle to be operated or occupied without a valid operating permit. Operating without a permit carries a fine of $50,000 or 5 years imprisonment upon summary conviction.
