BILBAO, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider worldwide, is supporting the Cantabria Government Department of Innovation, Industry, Tourism, and Commerce by providing gasoline and gasoil (diesel) sampling and quality testing for fuel distributed and sold in the region’s petrol diesel service stations.
Cantabria is a province in Spain, located on the Spanish northern coastal region.
The quality control program for marketed fuels in Cantabria complies with the European Commission’s request for the establishment of a uniform European system for fuel products distributed through petrol station networks. The program is referred to as the Fuel Quality Monitoring System (FQMS).
Intertek, as an independent, third party, accredited, laboratory under ISO 17025, supports the Government of Cantabria with random fuel sampling in a representative number of petrol stations located in the region. These samples are then tested for quality in the Intertek BTC Technology Center Laboratory in Bilbao.
Ángel Garrido, Intertek BTC Laboratory Manager, said: "We are pleased to assist the Government of Cantabria in the quality assurance of fuels sold in this region. The FQMS program helps both governments and oil companies to assure their clients that fuel meets the required quality standards and will not damage their vehicles due to fuels in bad conditions. It is essential that refined petroleum fuels and biofuels meet regulatory and environmental requirements."
