In addition to the standards in subpart 1, certified supervisors:
shall perform all storage tank projects so that there is no release of the contents of the tank;
must not affix the supervisor's signature or certification number to a storage tank project unless it was accomplished under the supervisor's direct control and personal supervision and the supervisor was present at all critical junctures during the storage tank project; and
must not certify to an owner that a storage tank project is complete unless it complies with Minnesota Statutes, sections 116.46 to 116.50, Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 280, subparts A to G, and state technical tank rules, chapter 7150, adopted under Minnesota Statutes, section 116.49, subdivision 1.
