Approved Quality Assurance Plans and Q-RIN Pathways under the Renewable Fuel Standard

Types of Quality Assurance Plans (QAPs)

There are two types of Quality Assurance Plans (QAPs):
  1. General; and
  2. Fuel pathway-specific.

A QAP provider must have an EPA-approved general QAP in order to register fuel pathway-specific QAPs.

List of Approved QAPs and Q-RIN Pathways under RFS

The table below lists the QAPs and Q-RIN Pathways that have been approved by EPA under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
