Welcome to R&A Risk Professionals

R&A Risk Professionals is recognized nationally as the leader in environmental risk management for the petroleum marketing industry. Since 1999, R&A has been providing independent, third-party compliance inspections for petroleum UST and AST facilities throughout the United States. As an independent, third-party inspector, we do not perform repairs, sell equipment or install equipment. Our inspections are designed to provide an unbiased inspection of all system components. Our inspections necessarily evaluate the quality of the installation work and any repairs that may have occurred. Because we do not install or sell petroleum equipment, we can provide a truly 100% independent evaluation of all facility equipment and operations.
