Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

What business activity should producers and marketers register under?

Producers and marketers should register as RIN owners and, as appropriate as an ethanol producer/importer, biodiesel producer/importer, and under any other category that applies to them. Registration is available on-line at Registration for Fuel Programs. If a party is unsure how to register after reviewing the forms and instructions, we have staff who can assist them and their contact information is given on the webpage.
