The Code for Hazardous Liquid Storage and Transportation Systems is used for safeguarding facilities that store or move hazardous liquids to prevent explosions or other safety hazards. The Code also applies to vessels that have been involved in transporting hazardous liquids. Common hazards include spills, leaks, fires, explosions, and intentional acts of vandalism. The 2017 edition of the Code was updated to include latest changes to the 2014 edition, to include references to current UL, UL standards and, for the first time, references to various manufactures' recommendations for Alternate Handling Methods (AHMs).

Other key changes to the 2017 edition include:
