22 MAY 2017 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE TANK CORROSION CONTROL SUPPLEMENT TO MP Resources Industry Codes and Standards for Corrosion Prevention of Storage Tanks Corrosion is a leading cause of storage tank and piping failures. Government regulations often require that industry codes and standards be followed (where applicable) to ensure that a storage tank system is properly designed, constructed, installed, and main- tained. For example, all U.S. underground storage tank systems must be designed, constructed, and protected from corrosion in accor- dance with a code of practice developed by a nationally recognized association or independent testing laboratory. Current government regulations should be reviewed to determine if a code of practice is required to be followed in order to meet regulatory requirements.
