Contractor Forum Agenda

The Contractor Forum
Asia Pacific Fuel Industry Forum

13 September 2017

Throughout 2017, since the establishment of the Contractors Agenda in February, working groups have been forming the framework for the ACAPMA Best Practice Guidelines.

These guidelines have been written for four topics identified as being areas where there were perceived gaps in best practices relating to the operation and maintenance of retail fuel infrastructure in Australia.

This workshop style meeting is designed specifically for the equipment and service providers to the fuel industry to discuss issues affecting their businesses and to present the best practice guidelines to industry.
