Standards and Classifications

The first standard for fuel oil came in 1982. The latest standard is ISO 8217 from 2005. The ISO standards describe four qualities of distillate fuels and 10 qualities of residual fuels. Over the years the standards have become stricter on environmentally important parameters such as sulfur content.

Some parameters for different grades of marine fuel oils according to ISO 8217 (3. ed 2005):
