HOME
The National Biodiesel Accreditation Program is a cooperative and voluntary program for the accreditation of producers and marketers of biodiesel fuel called BQ-9000®. The program is a unique combination of the ASTM standard for biodiesel, ASTM D6751, and a quality systems program that includes storage, sampling, testing, blending, shipping, distribution, and fuel management practices.

BQ-9000® is open to any biodiesel manufacturer, marketer or distributor of biodiesel and biodiesel blends in the United States and Canada.

BQ-9000 GOALS
  • To promote the commercial success and public acceptance of biodiesel.
  • To help assure that biodiesel fuel is produced to and maintained at the industry standard, ASTM D6751.
CATEGORIES OF CONFIDENCE

BQ-9000® helps companies improve their fuel testing and greatly reduce any chance of producing or distributing inadequate fuel. To receive accreditation, companies must pass a rigorous review and inspection of their quality control processes by an independent auditor. This ensures that quality control is fully implemented.

BQ-9000® PRODUCER
This category is for companies that produce biodiesel fuel (i.e. the fuel MUST meet the ASTM D6751 standard to be legally defined as biodiesel). The program ensures a production company is using a system for monitoring the quality of their biodiesel, including:

  • Sampling
  • Testing
  • Storage
  • Retain Samples
  • Shipping
BQ-9000® MARKETER
This category is for distribution companies who sell biodiesel and biodiesel blends. This is an important designation, because proper handling of biodiesel is as critical to fuel quality as proper production.
   
BQ-9000 LAB®
This category is for commercial laboratories engaged in the analysis of biodiesel and biodiesel blends. Laboratories operated by BQ-9000 Producers and Marketers are also eligible to seek this certification.
