Liquid or gaseous fuel
Ordinance amending the Fuel Ordinance (2011:346) (3 page(s), in English)
The relevant provisions are Sections 11 a–11 c in Annex 2. Those engaged in the commercial activity of providing a liquid or gaseous fuel, or who in that commercial activity also provide electricity as a fuel, shall provide the consumer with environmental information about the fuel that is being provided. For the purposes of this ordinance environmental information about the fuel means information about a fuel's emission of greenhouse gases over its life cycle, which fossil raw materials or renewable raw materials are contained in the fuel, and the country of origin of these raw materials. The information is based on data that is mandatory for the fuel supplier to report to the competent authority every calendar year. The yearly reporting requirements are laid down in national legislation as well as EU legislation. The relevant information is to be made available in its entirety on the fuel supplier's website. Certain information shall be made available to the consumers on a declaration which is affixed to the devices that are used by the companies to enable consumers to refill such fuels. The information on the declaration shall be given in abbreviated form – the fuel's emissions of greenhouse gases over its life cycle and which fossil raw materials or renewable raw materials are contained in the fuel – or through a reference to the fuel supplier's website – the country of origin of the raw materials. The origin shall only be made available to the consumers on the fuel supplier's website. It shall be stated at the point of sale that the information concerns historical data about the fuel that is being sold and is not specific data about the fuel that is being provided at time of purchase.
