Consultation description

The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) order was amended to implement the transport elements of the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED). This meant that there will be a number of significant changes relating to the reporting of both biofuel volumes supplied to the UK and the carbon and sustainability (C&S) data associated with these fuels. This consultation asked questions on the proposed RTFO guidance. This guidance will came into effect from the date of RED implementation and cover the rest of Year 4 of the RTFO. It is not anticipated that there will be further consultation on revised guidance for Year 5 (15 April 2012 - 14 April 2013).

This was not a formal consultation and respondents should note that the consultation period was shorter than that of the department’s formal written consultations. This approach was taken as this guidance is primarily of interest to a specialist audience and there is a need to deliver a working set guidance for suppliers and verifiers as soon as practical.
