Detail of outcome

In summer 2019, the government ran a consultation to determine the impact of implementing a Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) judgment on red diesel use in private pleasure craft.

The consultation outlined proposals for how the judgment could be implemented and asked a number of questions related to this to gather evidence about the impact this would have. The government received more than 1,600 responses and this document provides a summary of these. It also outlines the government’s response and next steps.

Consultation description

This consultation outlines how the government intends to implement the judgment by requiring private pleasure craft to use white diesel for propulsion, and seeks evidence about the impact this will have on users of diesel propelled craft operating in UK inland waterways and along the coast, and the companies that supply diesel to them.

The responses will be used to help determine whether a period will be required for suppliers, known as Registered Dealers in Controlled Oils (RDCOs), and users of diesel fuel, to adapt to using only white diesel for propulsion of private pleasure craft and, if needed, the length of any such period.
