The Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, yesterday said the authority will henceforth register aviation fuel marketers. This is coming just as the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman signed the modalities and prerequisites for the registration.
According to Usman, it is expected that all existing aviation fuel suppliers will be required to register and regularise their operations with the NCAA while new entrants will file fresh application with the same requirements.
“This action is not unconnected with the recent controversies and allegations concerning the Jet A1 supply and usage by the airline operators” he stressed.
The NCAA boss has however charged the relevant departments and officials of the authority to meet the marketers and all the stakeholders to sensitise them on the guidelines and requirements for registration prior to the exercise. He said that during the meeting, inputs and observation on the guidelines will be welcomed and discussed by all the parties concerned.
“To register as an aviation fuel supplier, an application should be written and addressed to the Director General, Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).
The application shall be signed by the lead promoter or Chief Operating/Executive Officer of the company and the airports/terminals where it intends to operate,” he said.
“This application must include the names and full address (es) of their technical partner(s) with copies of relevant agreements .Evidence of certification or licence duly issued by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) should be attached” Capt. Muhtar said.
