(Ohrid, 10.06.2016) - Consistent quality and accurate quantity of fuels sold at petrol stations with brand OKTA is the result of the six-month controls carried out by the Program Guarantee.
Today the program was officially presented in front of the public in Ohrid. The attendees at the event had the opportunity to learn about the whole process of controls and analyses that are performed as part of the program, thereby ensuring quality and quantity of fuels in OKTA.
“The results of the implementation of the Program Guarantee so far have shown stability in the quality and quantity of fuels available at all petrol stations of OKTA. This allowed us to confirm and strengthen the trust of our customers and motivate us to continue implementing the program in the future. Now they know that wherever they see the sign "Verified", the control is made to the last drop.”, stated Ioannis Geroulanos, Chief Executive Officer in OKTA.
The mobile laboratory managed by a team of independent controllers specially trained for this purpose, conducts regular and unexpected controls across the entire retail network of OKTA. According to the program, they first perform volumetric check of the fuel dispensers. The next step involves a quality control, that is, determination of the specific density and temperature of the tested fuel. Then, the program goes on to the last part of the procedure which is sampling. The sampling involves taking samples that will be used for additional check of the qualitative properties of fuels in an appropriate accredited laboratory. The analyses of fuel quality are performed at the petrol station itself, and also in the laboratory, thus, ensuring the reliability of the sample and the checks.
Upon completion of the check and verification of the quality and quantity of fuels, the fuel dispensers on which the control is performed are marked with yellow label for guaranteed quantity that reads “Verified”. Every petrol station that has successfully undergone the testing also receives a certificate.
The program continues to be implemented in the future. The mobile laboratory together with the team of independent controllers will conduct controls continuously and unexpectedly across the entire retail network with brand OKTA.
