Our business is about supporting yours

The UK and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association (UKIFDA) is the trade association for the liquid fuels distribution industry and ancillary interests in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It provides members with a collective voice for the industry at national level, services to assist members in optimising their business efficiencies including depot audits, certification schemes, tanker driver training. UKIFDA also promotes best practice in the industry through the UKIFDA Code of Practice.

Membership is organised on a geographical basis with regional meetings, and UKIFDA also organises an annual exhibition UKIFDA EXPO and  member conferences. Governance is through a council, to which each region nominates a representative.

UKIFDA offers support and a voice for the liquid fuels distributor at government level to try to ensure a fair deal for the industry as well as enabling distributors to meet and discuss current issues.

UKIFDA also encourages self-regulation of the industry through raised standards and best practice. It is up to the industry to organise itself through a single body in order to help itself – the UKIFDA exists solely for this purpose.
