The BQ-9000® program is a voluntary program for the accreditation of producers and marketers of biodiesel fuel. It 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® 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.
