D. FUTURE DIRECTIONS 1. PBS EGM - in 1999, focus was registration and tank testing for USTs. Will continue in one form or another. 2. Robotic inspections under API 653 3. Regional inspection/enforcement effort (CBS, PBS, & MOSF)

4. Enforcement:: 

a. Standardized inspection form b. Inspections via Palm Pilot - data collection & entry c. Inspection Tracking Database System d. Computerized NOV e. Compliance/Corrective Action Tracking System 5. GIS 6. Public Outreach a. Webpage b. Tank Bulletin c. Seminars/Workshops 4. Enforcement:
