Practical American Safety Solutions, better (and more easily) known as PASS Training & Compliance, or PASS, was founded in response to the passing of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, when the idea of UST Operator Training was first introduced. We worked closely with many state legislators and regulators to help finalize their laws to meet the federal requirements. We then quickly grew to expand relationships with nearly every US state and territory to become one of the country’s largest providers of UST Operator Training via our web-based learning management system, PASS Training.

As regulations grew and evolved, so did the demand on the time and attention of UST operators. We saw this as an opportunity to even better serve our customers, which lead to the development of our cloud-based compliance manage platform, PASS Tools for Companies, along with our partner-driven service provider network, PASS Tools for Service Providers.

As things continue to change we will always have a finger on the pulse of regulations and compliance in the UST and AST industries, to help ensure that our customers are equipped with everything necessary to easily and effectively do their jobs. Visit us at pass

About Us

“Neighbors Serving Neighbors.” It’s more than our slogan at IFRA, it’s at the core of every decision we make. IFRA was formed in order to foster a cooperative spirit between petroleum marketers and convenience store operators doing business in Illinois. It’s our guiding principal to eliminate practices and customs that are contrary to a capitalist economy and a competitive business environment in Illinois.
