Under the European Engine Lubricant Quality Management System (EELQMS), lubricant marketers making claims against the ACEA Oil Sequences are required by ACEA to submit a Letter of Conformance (LoC) to ATIEL. Submission of this letter implies a commitment to develop and manufacture engine lubricants in accordance with the guidelines described in the EELQMS. The LoC is generally valid for a two-year period and current letters expire on 31 October 2017. You will therefore need to renew your registration before then.
This year, there will be some major changes to the administration of the LoC registration system that are intended to strengthen compliance and add additional services to the growing number of registrants. These changes comprise:
ATIEL will continue to intensify its efforts to raise awareness of EELQMS at lubricants conferences and events world-wide. ATIEL will also work in conjunction with national lubricants associations to increase the understanding of the system and the benefits it can bring to its signatories and to further promote and enhance compliance among a growing share of market players.
To implement these changes and to support the management of the extended services in future, ATIEL has retained a service provider, SAIL BVBA, which will become the main point of contact for all activities associated with the registration of the LoCs.
