USCG Issues Notice on Tank Level or Pressure Monitoring Devices

Friday, November 17, 2006

Note: the USCG’s OPA 90 Staff reached a similar conclusion for tank level or pressure monitoring devices back in 1994. Litigation and legislation ensured. The physics and economics never changed. 71 Fed. Reg. 66960 Source: HK Law
