Regulatory Compliance

regulatory compliance

Distributors of petroleum products are faced with the challenges of complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, minimizing product losses and maximizing operational efficiency. Simultaneously, they must provide quality fuels — at competitive prices — to their customers. We fully understand these challenges and have made regulatory compliance a top customer support priority.

Our regulatory compliance support services include:

IVD Oversight Services 
Our staff helps you maintain the required records related to the use of intake valve deposit (IVD) additives. Services include developing a custom volumetric additive reconciliation (VAR), training on collection of this data and reviewing the data to assess compliance.

VAR Oversight Services 
We review actual IVD usage vs. target rates and work with the terminals to understand their specific IVD usage requirements (ethanol, low usage, etc.) to establish their target rate.

ULSD has introduced additional volumetric additive reconciliation (VAR) requirements for tracking sulfur contribution in diesel additives such as red dye and static dissipaters.

Reporting Assistance
We check the numbers generated from the terminals to ensure they are in compliance with EPA regulations and help generate VARs. VARs are then sent to a predetermined location for central storage.

Terminal Administration Manuals
We provide a terminal administration manual for each terminal and keep them current. This tool helps ensure that EPA compliance issues are properly addressed.
