Renewing a PST Delivery Certificate

How to renew the delivery certificate for underground storage tanks at your facility each year.

Each year, owners or operators of regulated underground petroleum storage tanks (USTs) must renew their facility's delivery certificate to continue to receive fuel deliveries.

As a courtesy, we send a renewal reminder letter to either the owner or operator of a regulated UST, depending on the box checked in Section 9 on the previously-submitted renewal application. But it is your responsibility to submit a complete renewal application on time.

To receive a reminder letter, tank status must be currently in use. If tank status is temporarily out of service, reminder letter will not be sent.

When Will My Certificate Expire?

To find out, look at the last digit of the official TCEQ owner identification number for the registered owner of the UST facility. The table below shows when the certificate will expire.
