FPT Regulations

Industry Engagement

In August 2020, the BC government announced the Fuel Price Transparency Regulations outlined in Order in Council No. 474/20, under the Fuel Price Transparency Act (FPT Act). These regulations require fuel importers, wholesalers, terminal owners/operators, and those who supply fuel to retail dealers to submit regular reports to the BCUC starting in November 2020. As the Administrator of the FPT Act, the BCUC is responsible for ensuring compliance to these regulations.
