The 2017 edition is now enforced in Ontario by TSSA under the Ontario Code Adoption document dated June 14th, 2017 which came into effect on Oct 1st, 2017.

Authored by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA), the Liquid Fuels Handling Code (LFHC) regulates the storage and handling of gasoline and associated products at bulk plants, marinas, retail outlets and private outlets. The Code also contains requirements for environmental remediation, equipment installation and operating requirements for gasoline facilities. The Code is available in hard copy, PDF and ePub format.

The 2017 edition replaces since the previous version released in 2007 and includes a number of changes to the following sections:
  • Clause 1: Scope, Application, and General Requirements
  • Clause 2: Underground Storage Tanks
  • Clause 3: Aboveground Storage Tanks
  • Clause 4: Piping and Product Transfer
  • Clause 5: Facility Design
  • Clause 6: Operating Requirements
  • Clause 7: Leak Detection
  • Clause 8: Environmental Restoration
  • Clause 9: Highway Tanks
  • Appendices A through G

Major changes or additions to the Code's clauses, tables, or figures are identified by the symbol delta in the margin. It's crucial that Code users have a comprehensive understanding of the Code in its entirety, not just the marked changes.

The Code is ideal for:

  • Equipment and system installation, storage, operation, and repair experts
  • Engineering and Design experts
