Since June 2013, under the Construction Product Regulations (CPR), it has been a legal requirement in all European member states (including Ireland and the UK) for every new plastic oil tank to have its own “Declaration of Performance”, which is evidence that the tank meets with required standards. This Declaration of Performance ensures that all plastic oil storage tanks have been tested and confirmed to meet to European Standard. The CE marking on a product is a manufacturer's declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation. All plastic oil storage tanks that are manufactured by Carbery Plastics are CE marked and meet the European Standard EN13341.

KIWA certification is arguably the most demanding of all European tank certification standards. Certification is a prerequisite to be able to compete effectively in the Dutch fuel tank market. It comprises an extensive audit of the company’s manufacturing operations and quality systems, together with a series of demanding product tests. Our commitment to quality ensured Carbery attained Kiwa certification in record time in 2014.
OFTEC, the Oil Firing Technical Association is a Trade Association representing manufacturers of oil firing and cooking equipment such as oil boilers, range cookers and storage tanks,. All Carbery Tanks are certified by an independent test house and approved by OFTEC and hold a certificate for each tank. These are available on request or through our download section attached to each product.
