A legal obligation to report selected petroleum and other fuel data commenced on 1 January 2018.
Activities such as producing, refining, wholesaling and holding of stocks of oil products such as crude oil, LPG, petrol, diesel, bitumen, lubricants and alternative transport fuels such as biofuel may need to be reported.
The introduction of mandatory reporting ensures the Australian Petroleum Statistics can continue to be a reliable source of accurate information on the transport fuels market.
The Australian Petroleum Statistics are used by business, government, international organisations and others to monitor the transport fuel market. For example, businesses use the statistics to monitor trends, evaluate market performance and prioritise investment.
The Australian Government uses the statistics to monitor Australia’s fuel supply security and compliance with our obligations as a member of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
The Australian Government is working with affected businesses to help them understand their reporting obligations.

The mandatory reporting scheme was developed in consultation with the transport fuel sector and other relevant industries.
