The mandatory registration procedure for biofuels producers, regardless of their state of establishment, was initiated following the publication of Regulation nr. 122/2017, march 10, retified on april 28 by Declaração de Retificação  265-A/2017. 

According to the above mention regulation, the registration request shall include the following information:
• Annex 2.F dully completed;
• Copy of the Certificate of Sustainability issued by a National Authority or by any voluntary scheme recognized as such by the European Commission;
• Term of Acceptance dully signed.

Until today there were 24 registration requests and more than half are still pending for lack of information. Other requests were refused based on the grounds that the economic operator was not a biofuels producer, but a trader. In fact, pursuant to Decree Law nr. 69/2016, November 3, any biofuels producer must be registered in ENMC, in order to pursue its economic activity in Portugal. 

Nevertheless, there were 6 registration requests which have been completed and approved. The list of biofuels producers was therefore updated as the file attached hereto.
