EI/JIG 1530 provides a standard to assist all parties in the maintenance of aviation fuel quality, from its point of manufacture through (sometimes complex) distribution systems to airports.

The Standard provides requirements and good practice recommendations for the design of facilities and operational procedures that apply upstream of airports. This includes aviation fuel quality assurance and traceability; management of change; sampling and testing of fuel; fuel testing laboratories; fuel manufacture; handling and application of aviation fuel additives; aviation fuel receipt, batching, certification and release; bulk fuel storage; ocean tankers, coastal and inland waterway vessels; and transportation by pipeline, rail, road and by drum, IBC and ISO tank containers.

The need for the management of aviation fuel quality throughout the supply chain is recognized by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and is described in its Doc 9977 Manual on civil aviation jet fuel supply. EI/JIG 1530 is a key reference in the ICAO Manual.

Since its publication in October 2013, EI/JIG 1530, and the associated self-assessment tool, has been used by over 200 companies to assess their facilities and operations against the requirements and recommendations. This implementation activity generated user feedback, which is being used in the preparation of a second edition. A draft version of the second edition is now available for stakeholder review (31 July-26 October 2018). Please spare the time to participate in this industry consultation process. Your contributions will help ensure that the Standard meets the needs of industry.
