Fuel Tank Licensing
Duntec utilises Engtech (Aust) Pty Ltd as an independent verification service to assist with the licencing of our fuel tanks and ensuring that they’re complaint to the applicable Regulations and Codes of Practise within Australia.
Engtech are a local engineering consultancy who specialise in the storage and handling of Dangerous Goods (DG). As Accredited DG consultants, Engtech’s employees are approved to endorse DG Assessments and License Applications by the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS).
When do I need a Dangerous Goods Licence?
A Dangerous Goods licence is required when a site stores or handles dangerous goods that exceeds a given quantity, known as the manifest quantity. For combustible liquids (diesel), this quantity is 100kL, while for flammable liquids (petrol), the quantity is 10kL.
How do I get a Dangerous Goods Licence?
In Western Australia, a DG licence is obtained by an accredited consultant submitting an endorsed application to DMIRS, following the completion of a compliance assessment to the DG Regulations and the approved Code of Practice.
What are the Dangerous Goods Regulations?
The DG Storage and Handling Regulations are a set of guidelines that are published by each of the states and territories within Australia. These list the requirements that each DG storage facility must meet in their given location.
What is a Dangerous Goods Compliance Assessment?
A DG compliance assessment is a check of DG storage against the Regulations to determine what compliance documentation is required for a site; then (if required) a review of the design, construction and operation of a DG facility is undertaken against the Regulations and approved Codes of Practice for the product that is being stored. For fuel tanks, the approved Codes of Practice are AS1692-2006 and AS1940-2017. All of Duntec’s equipment is designed and constructed to be compliant with these standards.
When do I need to perform a Dangerous Goods Compliance Assessment?
The DG Regulations require that a compliance assessment be performed for a DG storage and handling facility regardless of the quantity being stored. For licensed facilities, these assessments must be renewed every 5 years, or sooner if there is a change to the storage arrangement. The 5-year validity of a compliance assessment is fully independent of the Dangerous Goods Licence (meaning that a compliance assessment may need to be revised prior to the site’s DG licence expiring).

Obtaining and Providing Information
Plant designers, manufacturers, importers and suppliers all have responsibilities to obtain and/or provide information to the end-user to manage plant health and safety risks. Information should flow from plant designers to manufacturers, manufacturers to importers and suppliers, and from importers and suppliers to end-users.
What Information is Required
The information should cover the equipment’s intended purpose, installation, commissioning, use, decommissioning and dismantling and include the results of any calculations, analysis, testing or examination. Information should also include any hazards or risks that may be associated with using the equipment, including any conditions necessary to ensure the equipment is safe to use.
