An authorisation is required for the wholesaling of blends of biofuel and, or bioliquids and petroleumproducts when the biofuel content of the blend exceeds the maximum limit of biofuel content in MSA EN 590 and MSA EN 228. A Biofuel and Bioliquid operator may store petroleum products for the purpose of blending with biofuels and, or bioliquids, provided that the relevant authorisation for the storage of petroleum is obtained from the Authority. Any person who produces and imports biofuels and, or bioliquids for his own exclusive use and who does not produce or import in excess of 2,000 litres in the course of a calendar year, does not require an authorisation but is only required to notify the Authority and to submit to the Authority any information as may be required from time to time and observe any code of practice, guideline or direction which may be issued by the Authority
