Bunding of Storage Tanks and Transfer Facilities

Bunding, also called a bund wall, is an important engineering control in facilities where dangerous goods are stored or handled, to protect the land environment from contamination and to limit the spread and risks resulting from spills (either by force or it's chemistry).

The Local Order No. 61/1991 and the Code of Practice for the management of Dangerous Goods requires the adoption of safety precautions against the spillage of dangerous goods in storage and operating facilities.

This Technical Guideline specifies the minimum requirements for the bunding of tanks and handling areas.
