ppms flow chart

 

The Petroleum Product Marking Scheme provides a foundation for an effective quality monitoring systems by:

  • Offering consumer quality assurance and protection for products at the final dispensing outlet.
  • Checking/controlling malpractices that result in loss of government revenue and a secondary effect of interfering with product quality.
  • Increased tax base & revenue
  • Reduced smuggling
  • Fair business competition

Fuel Marking is the introduction of a unique identifier (bio-chemical liquid) in trace quantities into petroleum products at depots before distribution unto the market. The marker creates "finger print" and provides a secure, tamper-proof method of authentication. Marked fuel can be distinguished from unmarked fuel through a process of testing using specialized detecting equipment (LSX2000 and MSX1000).

The purpose of PPMS is to;

  • Preserve and Protect the quality and purity of petroleum products.
  • Detect and prevent the adulteration of petroleum products.
  • Monitor the quality and purity of petroleum products.

The implementation of the PPMS is as a result of NPA's objective of ensuring that the industry continues to be efficient and profitable whilst consumers are satisfied.
