Petroleum safety (HSE guidance)

Share this page

Petroleum Products which are highly flammable liquids are regulated by the Loi Relative aux Huiles ou Essences Minerales ou Autre Substances de la Meme Nature, 1924

  • This would include not only petroleum spirits used as a fuel for motor cars / cycles etc. but other petroleum products of a similar nature and flash point.

    • Flashpoint:: ie. the minimum temperature at which a liquid, under specific test conditions, gives off sufficient flammable vapour to ignite momentarily on the application of an ignition source.
    • Some of those products include: Aviation Fuel; Toluene & Xylene.
  • Is it always necessary, and does everyone need to have a licence?

    • The answer is 'no' in the following cases:
      • for domestic use, in an inhabited house or in a room directly communicating with an inhabited house; in quantities not exceeding two gallons.  That is provided that the oil is kept in hermetically-sealed vessels.
      • For commercial, professional and private or machine use but not for sale; the quantity should not exceed 10 gallons and should conform with any regulations prescribed by the Royal Court.
      • In motor-car, motor-cycle, motor-lorry and stationary-engine tanks adapted to the use of Inflammable Oils.
      • For use, other than for sale, in quantities not exceeding 25 gallons.  These oils must be kept in hermetically-sealed vessels and in a building used exclusively for this storage.  This building must be situated not less than 20 feet from any other building.
  • Loi Relative aux Huiles ou Essences Minerales ou Autre Substances de la Meme Nature, 1924

    • Applications to keep or store petroleum spirit in excess of certain minimum quantities are subject to Article II of the above Law.  Persons wishing to apply for a licence should complete sections 1, 2 and 4 of the Application Form— Order in Council 1925 Act II.
    • No material alteration or addition shall be made to any licensed store or premises without authorisation — Ordinance of the Royal Court, XX 1934, 10(1)(a).  Applications for permission to alter supply licensed premises should be made by completing sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Application Form.
    • Persons who are responsible for the safe storage of petroleum spirit under an existing licence may not transfer responsibility to another person until authorised to do so — Order in Council, II 1925; Act II (7).  Requests for a transfer of licence should be made by completing sections 1 and 4 of the Application Form.
  • Licensee Controlled Deliveries - Petroleum Delivery Form

    • Both the site operator and the tanker driver must complete this form before any delivery into the storage tank commences.
    • Available for download.
