Welcome to the FPS Fuel Certification Scheme

Fuel Cleanliness Test Samples

This scheme is designed to improve the quality of Fuel oil and raise quality standards in the industry.

As a trade association, the FPS membership delivers heating oil to residential homes, as well as marine, agricultural, commercial and industrial businesses.
With over 200 members owning some 2,500 tankers, the FPS represents 80% of oil distribution companies in the UK and Ireland.

The NEW Fuel Certification initiative will be responsible for testing kerosene, gas oil and diesel storage tanks quarterly for particulate, water content and biological contaminants. As a result of the tests, the organisation will be able to accurately predict trends in fuel quality and help its members improve quality standards across-the-board.

We are running the scheme in association with OTS TankCare and Scarlett’s Fuel System based on their collective experience and proven technology.

Sign up for the service and receive accreditation in the form of a FPS Fuel Certification quality logo, making it easier for customers to see whether or not a distributor is being tested under the terms of the initiative.

There is a discount for the first 30 member depots who sign up to the scheme.
