Petroleum Bulk Storage Online Registration

Petroleum Bulk Storage (PBS) registration applications can be submitted using the online tool nForm. However, at this time, only existing facilities can make information corrections/updates to their registrations.

New facility, renewal, and transfer of ownership applications must be submitted using paper forms available on our website. These applications will soon be available online as well. Prepopulated paper applications (for renewals and transfers of ownership) can be requested by contacting your regional DEC office, bulk storage unit.

Accessing nForm

The online form tool, nForm, requires a NY.gov account. If you do not have an account, you can create one here (leaves DEC's website) by clicking the "Don't have an Account?" button, and following the instructions. Please choose the "Personal" option when creating an account (even if you are a business).

The PBS nForm page, including all online forms, can be found here. When first opening the nForm page, you will be prompted to enter your NY.gov account. Forms will appear at the bottom of the page or through using the Form Finder on the left side of the screen.

Online Forms

Existing facilities will need their PBS number and associated PIN to access their registrations. Your PBS number can be found on your registration certificate that was mailed when you last registered/renewed your application. Your PIN was emailed to the mail contact we have on file. You can also request your PIN by contacting your DEC regional office by email (see list of contacts for each region below). When emailing the DEC regional office for your PIN, please use an email address listed on your registration so that we can easily verify your identity.
