ACEA Oil Sequences 2016 published
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) has published its European Oil Sequences 2016, which define engine lubricant quality requirements for gasoline engines and light- and heavy-duty diesel engines.
Oil marketers may continue to make new claims against the 2012 sequences until 1 December 2017, after which every new claim has to be made against the 2016 sequences. Existing engine lubricants using claims against the 2012 sequences can be marketed until 1 December 2018.
The new Sequences make reference to the revised EELQMS, available on a new, dedicated website at www.eelqms.eu. The website currently comprises a holding page until the new stand-alone EELQMS document is officially launched at the beginning of January, together with Issue 20 of the ATIEL Code of Practice.
