This section is intended to provide background information and guidance for managers and staff in Enforcement & Compliance and Large Business, on the law, policy and assurance techniques concerning the following three fundamental aspects of the UK Oils Strategy:
- the Tied Oils scheme
- the Registered Dealers in Controlled Oil (RDCO) scheme
- post detection audit and assessment
It also provides guidance on the treatment of fuel used in private pleasure craft and in private pleasure-flying. Although this does not fall under the UK Oils strategy, RDCOs do have a number of responsibilities under the schemes.
