(F) The information required by subsections (a)(1)(E)3. and (a)(1)(E)4. of this section need not be marked on the hose if it is recorded in the hose records of the terminal or vessel and the hose is marked to identify it with that information.
(G) The hose burst pressure and the pressure used for the test required by 33 CFR 156.170 shall not be marked on the hose and shall be recorded elsewhere at the terminal.
(H) Each non-conducting length of hose used for transferring oil or for vapor control at onshore terminals shall be clearly marked “NON-CONDUCTING” where it can best be seen.
(2) Each hose used for transferring oil shall be inspected, maintained, handled, stored and tested in accordance with the recommended practices in “HOSE TECHNICAL INFORMATION BULLETIN: No. IP-11-4,” except that the frequency of periodic hose testing shall be in accordance with 33 CFR 156.170 and subsections (A), (B) and (C) of this section.
(A) All new hose and hose which has undergone a coupling repair shall be tested before it is placed in service.
(B) Hose assemblies subjected to severe end pull, flattening, crushing or sharp kinking shall be immediately inspected and subjected to a pressure test, and if applicable, an electrical continuity test.
(C) The following tests shall be conducted at intervals not to exceed twelve months:
1. A hydrostatic pressure test;
2. A vacuum test for hoses which have an inner tube liner; and
3. For electrically continuous lengths of hoses, an electrical continuity test which may be performed at the same time as the tests in subsection (d) of § 2341 of this Article 5.
(b) Loading Arms.
(1) Each mechanical loading arm used for transferring oil and placed into service after June 30, 1973, shall meet the design, fabrication, material, inspection, and testing requirements in American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B31.3, published in 1990 and available from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 22 Law Drive, Box 2300, Fairfield, New Jersey 07007-2300.
(2) The manufacturer's certification that the standard American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B31.3 has been met shall be permanently marked on the loading arm or recorded elsewhere at the terminal with the loading arm marked to identify it with that information.
(3) Each mechanical loading arm used for transferring oil shall have a means of being drained or closed before being disconnected.
(4) Each mechanical loading arm shall be marked where it can best be seen, with the following:
(A) Maximum allowable working pressure; and
(B) Date of the latest annual test required by 33 CFR 156.170; dates of previous tests shall be obliterated.
(5) Each mechanical loading arm shall have its maximum allowable lateral movement envelope limits conspicuously marked on the terminal at the position of the loading arm. The allowable extension limits of the loading arm shall also be indicated visibly.
(c) Closure Devices.
The terminal shall have sufficient blank flanges or other means acceptable to the Division to blank off the ends of each hose or loading arm that is not connected for the transfer of oil. New, unused hose is exempt from this requirement.
(d) Connection.
(1) Each person who makes a bolted connection for transfer operations shall:
(A) Use suitable material in joints and couplings to ensure a leak-free seal;
(B) Use a bolt in every hole;
(C) Use bolts of the correct size in each bolted connection; and
(D) Tighten each bolt and nut uniformly to distribute the load sufficiently and to ensure a leak free seal.
(2) A person who makes a connection for transfer operations shall not use any bolt that shows signs of strain or is elongated or deteriorated.
(3) Except as provided in subsection (4) of this section, no person may use a connection for transfer operations unless it is:
(A) A bolted or full threaded connection; or
(B) A quick disconnect coupling that either meets American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F-1122, Standard Specifications for Quick Disconnect Couplings, published in 1987 by the American Society for Testing and Materials, 1916 Race Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103-1187 or has been accepted by the U.S. Coast Guard.

(2) A point in the transfer system at which the emergency means stops the flow of oil on the terminal shall be located near the dock manifold connection to minimize the loss of oil in the event of the rupture or failure of the hose, loading arm, or manifold valve.
(3) For oil transfers, the means used to stop the flow under the subsection (h)(1) of this section shall stop that flow within:
(A) 60 seconds on any terminal or portion of a terminal that first transferred oil on or before November 1, 1980; and
