Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

Will the terminals or pipelines have to provide consignees to interconnecting pipelines any documentation, or can they forward documentation from the source, or is no documentation an option?

When a party transfers custody of designated fuels in the distribution system the transferor must provide a PTD to the new custodian.

PTDs contain a variety of information, some of which will not be included in information generated by prior sources of the fuel. No documentation is not an option in cases where a PTD is required.
