The ORA /Oil Care Campaign Code of Practice and Licensed Quality Scheme
Section 3 of the Processed Fuel Oil Quality Protocol sets out the detailed requirements that suppliers of these materials into England, Wales and Northern Ireland must meet in order to conform to regulatory standards. Similar requirements exist in Scotland.
It is deemed a Duty of Care for users to ensure that products claimed to meet the Quality Protocol actually do so.
The Oil Recycling Association and the Oil Care Campaign have jointly established a licensed audited scheme for PFO production. Holders of a current licence will have been subjected to an audit designed not only to ensure compliance with the Quality Protocol but to a wider standard encompassing their capabilities of managing incoming oil wastes, their storage and processing, as well as the supply and transportation of output fuel.
The Oil Care Campaign was set up by the Environment Agency in association with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Northern Ireland Environment Agency and industry associations to reduce oil pollution by providing guidance on and facilities for the safe disposal and management of oil. It comprises a wide number of cross party interests from Government, Regulators, Local Authorities and a number of Oil Industry Trade Associations representing suppliers and users of petroleum products.
