Fuel Marking Program Has Officially Started
SGS Philippines is now in full swing in the implementation of one of its biggest milestones as a testing services provider.
SEAOIL has spearheaded the government’s fuel marking program by ensuring proper fuel marking of all their stored bulk fuels in their depot in Mabini, Batangas last August 9. The first live actual fuel marking has been implemented by SGS Philippines with the presence of SEAOIL Philippines’ CEO Mr. Glenn Yu along with the respected representatives of BIR, BOC and DOF.

The fuel marking program has been implemented with its prime goal to deter the rampant illegal oil trade in the Philippines. This is done thru placing a molecular marker on all imported, manufactured and refined fuel products such as gasoline, diesel and kerosene.

Following the initial implementation and in compliance with the implementing rules and regulations, all tax-paid gas, diesel and kerosene distributed in all stores and depots in Philippines shall be tested if complying with the prescribed dilution level.
SGS services will cover from the production of the molecular markers, transportation and storage, to actual marking and field inspections. These services are being provided by SGS in several countries as well.
The fuel marking program was officially launched during BOC’s 117th anniversary celebration with SGS Philippines and SICPA S.A representatives with DOF and BOC.
