According to Code of MD regulation (COMAR) 26.10.06, the installation, repair, removal or inspection of underground storage tank (UST) systems requires an individual to be certified and present during all phases of work at regulated tank systems. The Oil Control Program (OCP) administers and enforces the certification of technicians, removers, and inspectors that perform this work.
