Emergency Fuel Waivers

EPA, working with the Department of Energy, responds quickly to address fuel supply disruptions caused by, for example, refinery or pipeline infrastructure damage as the result of a hurricane or other natural disaster, by issuing emergency waivers of certain fuel standards in affected areas. When issued, these temporary waivers are necessary to help ensure that an adequate supply of fuel is available, particularly for emergency vehicle needs.
