Fuel Supplier Compliance

Anyone who manufactures fuel in British Columbia or imports it into the province is considered to be a fuel supplier and must comply with the Renewable & Low Carbon Fuel Requirements Regulation.

Reporting Requirements

Each compliance period is the calendar year from January 1 to December 31. Compliance reports are due on March 31 following each compliance period.

Reporting documents for the 2018 Compliance Period are due on March 31, 2020.

For more information, see:

Compliance and Exclusion Reporting are managed through the Transportation Fuels Reporting System.

Part 3 Agreements

Part 3 Agreements are intended to promote innovation, diversity and greater uptake of lower carbon transportation fuels – all contributing to accelerated market transformation.  Projects and activities supported by Part 3 Agreements should reduce, or enable reductions of, GHG emissions resulting from the use of Part 3 fuels.  Part 3 Agreements are intended to help fuel suppliers undertake actions that are not otherwise economically viable, and that will help create future pathways for compliance.

Small Supplier Exemption

The Regulation allows companies supplying less than 75 million litres of fuel to apply for exemption from the renewable or the low carbon fuel requirements. For more information, see:
