The Oil Storage Regulations are different within England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The lack of standardisation within the UK can cause confusion for organisations who may think they are operating within the law only to find out that they are complying with the law applicable to another country within the UK!

For example, in Scotland the regulations include indoor oil storage - whereas the English regulations don't. In Northern Ireland the regulations include oil storage depots but they are excluded from the English and Scottish regulations. In Scotland the regulations include all waste oil but in England the regulations only apply to certain waste oils such as cooking oils.

The following pdf's cover the main regulations for the UK:
