Companies covered by the Activities Decree (Activiteitenbesluit = BARIM) are legally required to have their chemical storage installation to be installed by an installer certified in accordance with BRL-K903. Certified installers must submit an approved RI&E (Risk Inventory & Evaluation) before a certificate in accordance with BRL-K903 can be issued. The tanks and spill containers required for the storage of chemicals will be part of this RI&E.

The RI&E of each installation can be streamlined when use is made of certified components. In such cases, the RI&E aspects related to the certified products, are not required. Storage tanks and spill containers, coated or panted with certified products, in accordance with the requirements of BRL-K790, will be in accordance with the requirements of the BARIM, RARIM and BRL-K903.
