On a day to day basis, NOT during cargo ops, where and how is the containment plug stored.
The tankermen I work with say: “on hand”.
On a permanently installed spill box, does the plug have to be “permanently affixed” (like on a chain),
or does it have to be “readily available”?
I have searched the CFRs and can’t find the citation.
My understanding is readily available.
Our Transfer Manual only says “installed prior to commencement”.
I have seen several different ways of storage, but what are the actual rules?
Thanks for any help.
