The Safe Loading Pass Scheme (SLPS) is a code of practice developed, owned and managed by industry. It is recognised by members of the UK Petroleum Industry Association and the Tank Storage Association.
As an integral part of a participating petroleum terminal’s safety management system, it aims to identify vehicles and trailers that have been inspected on a minimum six-monthly basis. Only vehicles and trailers meeting specified safety standards are admitted to participating fuel loading terminals.
The scheme applies to terminals supplying the following fuels:
- UN1202 – Gas oil or diesel fuel or heating oil, light
- UN1203 – Gasoline or petrol or motor spirit
- UN1223 – Kerosene
- UN1863 – Fuel, aviation, turbine engine
- UN1170 – Ethanol
It does not apply to vehicles registered outside England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland or vehicles carrying liquefied petroleum gas, bitumen, black oil or lubricants.
The SLPS is owned by UKPIA and managed by the Freight Transport Association.
