Compliance Assessment & Planning

Powering the Success of Northern California means we also help you remain compliant with the numerous agencies and codes that regulate your generator use. We’ve simplified the complex maze of requirements so you are ready for a surprise inspection and mandated reports are just one click away.

When we assess the repair and maintenance needs of your generator, we also evaluate the following generator compliance factors:

  • What Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) govern your location
  • Load tests, as required by the NFPA 110
  • Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) inspection and testing, per NFPA 110
  • Record keeping, per NFPA 110
  • Secondary remote emergency stop switch requirement, per NFPA 70
  • Annual diesel fuel testing, per NFPA 110
  • Rupture basin sensor testing, per California Fire Code (CFC) 5003 & 5004
  • Above ground storage tank inspection, per SPCC and STI requirements
  • Emergency power source exit lighting, per CFC 1011

Above Ground Tank Inspection Service

The Steel Tank Institute (SPI) developed the standard inspection protocol, SP001, governing inspections for shop-built and field-erected ASTs containing up to 50,000 gallons of fuel. Knowledge of EPA requirements plus other federal, state, and local regulations impacting fuel storage are critical. CD & Power can help you meet these unique regulatory requirements by:

  • Performing inspections per SP001 protocol and provide inspection report
  • Training all technicians who perform inspections at your site

Risks of Noncompliance

Organizations that fail to have regular inspections performed are at risk of citations by the fire authority, leaks and the associated penalties, costly repairs, and downtime.

In order to comply with EPA SPCC (Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure) rules, a facility must regularly test liquid level sensing devices to ensure proper operation (40 CFR 112.8(c)(8)(v))
