[...]

- “impervious/impermeable”: with such a low permeability with respect to the products to be retained that pollution of the soil, groundwater and surface water is precluded;

- “bund”: an excavated impervious construction made of non-flammable materials which serves in collecting leaked liquids; also covered by this definition is “collector tray” as referred to in the Order of the Government of Flanders of 27 March 1985 concerning the regulations of activities within water catchment areas and protected zones;

the container(s) placed inside is/are below the level of the adjacent ground so that the top part of the container(s) is/are at least 50 cm under the specified level;

b)

no groundwater can enter the containment trench;

c)

no rainwater can enter the containment trench or, if the containment trench is not covered, it is provided with a system that allows the removal of the water after it has been established that none of the products stored is in this water;

- “permanent leak detection system”: a permanent system that allows the establishing of leaks in an easy manner;

- “tank farm”: a collection of one or more aboveground containers within one bund and with a total capacity of more than 250 m;

- "dangerous liquids of group 1": flammable liquids of danger category 1, 2 and 3 according to the CLP Regulation with a flashpoint below 55 C;

- "dangerous liquids of group 2":

a)

Flammable liquids of danger category 3, marked exclusively by danger pictogram GHS02 according to the CLP Regulation, with a flashpoint equal to or greater than 55 C, and

b)

flammable liquids and petroleum products identified by the GHS02 danger pictogram according to the CLP Regulation, with a flashpoint equal to or higher than 55C;

- "dangerous liquids of group 3": liquids marked by at least one danger pictogram according to the CLP Regulation, other than dangerous liquids of group 1 and group 2;
