Jointly published by the EI and JIG (Joint Inspection Group).

EI/JIG 1530 provides a Standard to assist all parties in the maintenance of aviation fuel quality, from its point of manufacture through to delivery to airports. The Standard includes industry-accepted mandatory provisions and good practice recommendations for the design/functional requirements of facilities, and operational procedures that apply upstream of airports.

Originally developed and published in 2013, this new edition has been fully revised with input from over 100 aviation fuel quality specialists representing nearly 50 organisations. A line has been included in the margin of this publication alongside any text, tables or figures that have been amended from the first edition. Notably, the standard has been made less jet fuel-specific with the inclusion of aviation gasoline (avgas) when appropriate.

Requirements are specified for 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.

Requirements are also included for the manufacture and handling of synthetic fuel blends.

This Standard is recognised in ICAO Doc 9977 Manual on civil aviation jet fuel supply. All companies handling aviation fuel in all aviation fuel supply chains are encouraged to conform with the requirements.

Any feedback on the technical content of the published second edition is welcomed. Please submit your comments using this template.

EI JIG Standard 1530 Self-assessment tool

The EI has developed a comprehensive checklist to accompany EI/JIG Standard 1530 Quality assurance requirements for the manufacture, storage and distribution of aviation fuels to airports.

Published in excel spreadsheet format, this self-assessment tool is primarily intended for use by the owners/operators of existing facilities who wish to assess whether the infrastructure, equipment and procedures in use conform to the requirements and/or recommendations of EI/JIG 1530. It may also have other uses, e.g. when assessing whether facilities used for other products are suitable for aviation fuel service.

Purchasers of EI JIG 1530 should contact the EI's Publishing Team with a copy of their receipt to receive a copy of the self assessment tool.
