SEI Industries’ Arctic-Shield berm liners are now Intertek-certified to meet the requirements of CAN/ULC-S668-12, making SEI the first company to manufacture a berm that meets this new standard.

What is CAN/ULC-S668-12?

CAN/ULC-S668-12 is the standard for liners used for secondary containment of above ground flammable and combustible liquid tanks. The standard sets forth minimum requirements for the material properties and performance of liners used for secondary containment under and around the area of tanks that are installed above ground for the storage of flammable and combustible liquids.

CAN/ULC-S668-12 replaces ORD-C58.9-1997, a standard listed under section 3.9.2(1) of the CCME Environmental Code of Practice for Aboveground and Underground Storage Tank Systems Containing Petroleum and Allied Petroleum Products. Section 3.9.2(1) reads that “a secondary containment impermeable barrier shall be designed, built and approved in conformance with ORD-C58.9-1997.”

In January, 2013, a Note to Reader was added to the CCME Code of Practice stating that ULC had published the First Edition of CAN/ULC-S668-12 which complements current referenced standards within the CCME Code. The Note to Reader also stated that ULC had already withdrawn ORD-C58.9-1997, effective March 31, 2009.

Compliance with section 3.9.2(1) of the CCME Code of Practice is required as per regulations SOR/2008-197 (Storage Tank Systems for Petroleum Products and Allied Petroleum Products Regulations) made under The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999
