Possibility to manufacture marine fuel with sulfur mass fraction not exceeding 1.5% and put it into circulation in EAEU market extended for three years

At its meeting held on November 24, the Eurasian Economic Commission's Council amended the Note to Annex 7 of the Customs Union's Technical Regulation "On requirements to motor and aviation gasoline, diesel and marine fuel, jet fuel and fuel oil" at the proposal of the Russian Federation.

Until December 31, 2026, the possibility to manufacture and put into circulation marine fuel with a sulfur mass fraction not exceeding 1.5% has been extended for vessels involved in inland water transportation.

This decision was adopted to ensure stability of inland water transportation, existing logistics schemes and to maintain uninterrupted supply of goods to the regions of the Far North and equated localities.
