Details

This Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) guidance is for fuel suppliers, independent verifiers and others involved in the supply of road transport biofuels in the UK but not those reporting under the Motor Fuel Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Regulations, for which separate guidance has been issued.

The RTFO guidance is in 3 parts.

Part 1: process guidance

Part 1 provides information on how fossil fuel and renewable transport fuel suppliers should comply with the order plus practical instructions on how to submit required information. It provides information about:

  • the obligation that the RTFO order puts on certain fuel suppliers
  • applying for and maintaining an account with the RTFO administrator
  • applying for Renewable Transport Fuels Certificates (RTFCs)
  • penalties for non-compliance

Part 2: carbon and sustainability guidance

Part 2 provides assistance on carbon and sustainability reporting for fossil and renewable transport fuel suppliers receiving RTFCs. It provides information about:

The biofuels carbon calculator allows fuel suppliers to calculate the carbon saved on a batch of fuels.

Part 3: guidance for verifiers

Biofuels carbon and sustainability data must be independently verified before RTFC are awarded. Part 3 provides information about:

  • the purpose and requirements of verification
  • planning and risk assessment
  • developing an assurance strategy
  • reporting and assurance statements
