ATCP 93.703 ATCP 93.703Definitions. In this subchapter:
ATCP 93.703(1) (1) “ Accidental release” means any release of petroleum arising from operating a storage tank system that results in a need for corrective action or compensation for bodily injury or property damage neither expected nor intended by the tank owner or operator.
ATCP 93.703(2) (2) “ Affidavit of financial responsibility” means a form, supplied by the department on which the owner and operator attest to compliance with 40 CFR 280.111.
ATCP 93.703 Note Note: The affidavit of financial responsibility is available from the Bureau of Weights and Measures, PO Box 8911, Madison, WI 53708-8911, or by telephone at (608) 224-4942, or from the Bureau's Web site at https://datcp.wi.gov/Pages/Programs_Services/PetroleumHazStorageTanksForms.aspx.
ATCP 93.703 Note Note: The affidavit of financial responsibility is required in addition to the certification showing the specific type of financial responsibility. See s. ATCP 93.745 (2) (j) for further information.
ATCP 93.703(3) (3) “ Aggregate” means an accident or a continuous or repeated exposure to conditions that result in a release from a storage tank system which might occur in one year.
ATCP 93.703 Note Note: This definition is intended to assist in the understanding of these regulations and is not intended either to limit the meaning of “aggregate” in a way that conflicts with standard insurance usage or to prevent the use of other standard insurance terms in place of “aggregate.”
ATCP 93.703(4) (4) “ Bodily injury” has the meaning given to this term by applicable Wisconsin statutes; however, this term does not include those liabilities that, consistent with standard insurance industry practices, are excluded from coverage in liability insurance policies for bodily injury.
ATCP 93.703 Note Note: For further information about this term, see ch. Ins 6, which interprets this term as it is used in s. 292.63 (1) (ad), Stats., for petroleum storage environmental cleanup.
ATCP 93.703(5) (5) “ Controlling interest” means direct ownership of at least 50 percent of the voting stock of another entity.
ATCP 93.703(6) (6) “ Financial reporting year” means the latest consecutive 12-month period for which any of the following reports are prepared:
ATCP 93.703(6)(a) (a) A 10-K report submitted to the US securities and exchange commission.

ATCP 93.703(6)(c) (c) An annual report submitted to the federal energy information administration or rural utilities service.
ATCP 93.703 Note Note: “Financial reporting year” may thus comprise a fiscal or a calendar year period.
