Our business is about supporting yours

The Federation of Petroleum Suppliers  Limited (FPS) is the trade association for the heating oil 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.  The FPS also promotes best practice in the industry through the FPS Code of Practice.

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

The FPS offers support and a voice for the oil 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.

The FPS 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 FPS exists solely for this purpose.
