Manufacturers/importers of biodiesel for on-road use are required to register the fuel with the EPA.
To register, complete EPA Form 3520-12 available here: https://www.epa.gov/fuels-registration-reporting-and-compliance-help/register-fuel-or-fuel-additive
Additionally, please attach the following information to the form:
- Description of raw materials used to manufacture the biodiesel.
- Description of the process used to manufacture the biodiesel.
- Laboratory test report for the biodiesel. (We are looking for the fuel to meet ASTM D6751).
- You need to group with the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) to meet the Tier 1 and Tier 2 health effects as needed (Please see item 13 on EPA Form 3520-12.) but their permission is no longer needed.
A separate registration is also required for the diesel sulfur program and the renewable fuel standard program via the Central Data Exchange. Please see:
