Actual deliveries to the Dutch market

Statistics Netherlands calculates the actual physical deliveries of biofuels to the Dutch market by combining information derived from first-hand observation with information which motor fuel suppliers provide to the Dutch Emission Authority (the body inspecting compliance with the legal obligation). Following adjustments in the legislation on this obligation, the logistics and registration of the biofuels have changed, making it more difficult to determine the actual deliveries to the Dutch market. As estimated by Statistics Netherlands, the margin of uncertainty regarding the figure on biofuels went up from 5 percent in 2014 to 15 percent in 2015.
