IBIA Updates Sampling Equipment Guide

Monday, March 26, 2001
The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) has published an updated edition of its Bunker Fuel Sampling Equipment guide. The second edition of the guide reflects changes that have occurred in the sampling industry over the last three years and provides an overview of manufacturers, products and prices. "At present, only 30 per cent of bunker deliveries are sampled and tested independently. IBIA strongly recommends that all bunker deliveries are sampled so that both suppliers and buyers can ensure that the fuel delivered meets the required specifications. The guide is intended to provide suppliers and buyers with a clear picture of the sampling technology available to them. It also outlines what they should look for in their sampling equipment," says Chris Leigh-Jones, IBIA's chairman. Bunker Fuel Sampling Equipment also provides information on where samples should be taken and how samples should be treated and shipped. Leigh-Jones says, "There is currently no international bunker sampling standard. The guide will help buyers and suppliers better understand the issues involved, allowing them to better organise and execute their sampling programs." Bunker Fuel Sampling Equipment will be distributed free of charge to IBIA members. Non-members are able to obtain copies from IBIA at a cost of £50 per copy.
