VANCOUVER, B.C. — B.C. is combating the abuse of coloured fuel by launching a new program that will authorize all sellers of the fuel.

The Ministry of Provincial Revenue will implement a program aimed at: educating sellers and purchasers of coloured fuel; increasing equity between compliant and non-compliant purchases; providing an ability to suspend and cancel authorization to sell where abuse is occuring; and reducing the risk of revenue losses from unauthorized uses.

Under the program, coloured fuel sellers will be required to ask for all account customers to sign a one-time ministry certificate confirming the customer is aware of the authorized uses of coloured fuel and that the coloured fuel will only be used for valid purposes.

For information about the program, call Hugh Hughson at 250-387-0674.
