Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

The regulations require that an importer be registered 90 days before imports are received. Does this mean the company or the facility?

Both. If an importer chooses to register individual import facilities it must register them 90 days prior to shipping into them. However, an importer is only required to register its activities in each PADD (still 90 days in advance) as per § 80.76(c)(3) in the amended regulations.(7/1/94)
