Trading Standards are the petroleum licensing authority in Surrey and we are responsible for ensuring safety at sites where petrol is delivered, stored and dispensed.
Petrol must be stored in accordance with certain conditions attached to a licence that we issue and our aim is to ensure the observance, maintenance and, where necessary, the improvement of safety standards.
Before applying for a licence please study our Model licensing conditions.
The cost of a Petroleum licence is dependant on the quantity that will be stored.
For more information please see the Heath and Safety Executive's, "What to expect when a Health and Safety Inspector calls" and the following files below:
