TSA - Tank Storage Association

United Kingdom

Last update:

TSA is an industry based organisation whose members are dedicated to the professional provision of third party bulk liquid storage in the UK. Products stored typically include crude oil, petroleum and chemicals as well as potable liquids, edible oils and fats. Receipt and delivery of these products takes place by means of sea transport, inland barge, road, rail and cross country pipeline. Tank storage thus provides an essential interface between these various modes of transport. The industry also provides additional services, such as heating, blending and transformation of these products so that the diverse requirements of customers can be effectively met in a safe and cost effective way.

Products stored are for third parties and our member companies generally do not own the products they store.

TSA’s role is to champion the needs of its membership in Safety, Health, Environmental and Technical matters. One of the ways in which this is achieved is through our representation on a number of key industry groups, including HSE’s Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum; Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Downstream Oil Industry Forum; and several of the Energy Institute’s technical committees.

One of TSA’s key objectives is to encourage performance improvements and raise the overall standards within its membership. To this end the TSA’s members have, for more than 10 years, been reporting their occupational health and safety statistics to the Association who have been aggregating this data to demonstrate overall how members have performed.

TSA is also a member of the Federation of European Tank Storage Associations, FETSA, which is headquartered in Brussels with responsibility for monitoring EU issues which have an impact on the bulk liquid storage industry. It also fosters cross sector links, an example of a recent activity in this area is the work undertaken by FETSA, CEFIC, CONCAWE and FECC on the development of the IPPC-BREF on storage.
