In 2004 Delaware became the first state in the Union to pass a law requiring that all aboveground fiberglass reinforced tanks of 12,000 or more gallons intended to store hazardous materials be designed, fabricated, inspected and stamped in accordance with the ASME RTP-1 Standard – a standard of accreditation in existence since 1989.
