UPEI wishes to raise its concern at the measures introduced by the French Government by Ministerial Order of 3 January 2015. By this Ministerial Order, the specification for diesel sold in France has been modified to increase the level of FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) to a maximum of 8% by volume. This is not in conformity with the existing EU standards and specifications for diesel fuel EN590 which set the maximum FAME content at 7% and are designed to ensure coherence throughout Europe, guaranteeing consumer protection.
