Federal Identification Registry for Storage Tank Systems
The Federal Identification Registry for Storage Tank Systems (FIRSTS) is Environment and Climate Change Canada’s database of storage tank systems subject to the Storage Tank for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations. Owners of storage tank systems (STS) subject to the Regulations must identify their STS to Environment and Climate Change Canada. In order to access FIRSTS, STS owners must first obtain an account. Accounts can be requested by e-mailing email@example.com. Only owners of storage tank systems that are subject to the Regulations are eligible for an account.When identifying a tank system to FIRSTS for the first time, the system will generate a unique identification number for the tank system. This number must then be displayed in a readily visible location on or near the tank system.
