Submit your quarterly fuel sales reports by 30 April

Quarterly fuel sales reports for the period 1 January 2017 to 31 March 2017 can be submitted from 1 April 2017.

Submit your quarterly fuel sales reports using the online portal before 30 April 2017.

The information collected will help determine whether fuel sellers are complying with the mandate.

Who needs to report?

All fuel sellers who are subject to the mandate must complete the quarterly report.  Fuel sellers who have submitted an exemption application, or have been granted an exemption from the requirement to sell a minimum amount of sustainable biobased fuel, are still required to provide quarterly reports.

Those retailers who fall below the threshold for the mandate do not need to complete the quarterly report.  However, they will still need to submit annual reports beginning in July 2017.

Who needs to meet the mandate?

Impact of Cyclone Debbie and other severe weather

Fuel sellers who have difficulty completing their quarterly reporting or who think they need an exemption from the mandate as a result of Cyclone Debbie or other severe weather are encouraged to contact us for assistance.  Please email biofuels@dews.qld.gov.au or call 13 43 87.

Keep your business details up to date

Fuel sellers must notify QLD DEWS of any change to their registration information within one month of the change.  Registration information includes the fuel seller’s contact details, the address of each of the fuel seller’s facilities and the grades of fuel supplied from each facility.

You can meet these obligations by explaining the changes to your registration information in an email to the Chief Executive of the Department of Energy and Water Supply via biofuels@dews.qld.gov.au.

Departmental compliance strategy available online

The biofuels mandate compliance and enforcement strategy, available on the DEWS website, helps fuel sellers understand the general approach to compliance and enforcement of the Act.

Each instance of non-compliance with the Act will be considered individually on its own facts and circumstances.  Our objective is to achieve voluntary compliance through education and engagement with industry where possible.  However, under the Act, DEWS also has the power to apply to the court for a penalty to be imposed upon a fuel seller who fails to comply with their legislative obligations.
