SCOPA members are committed to ensuring the highest possible standards of safety, hygiene and quality of the oils and fats they supply to the food industry.

By using a SCOPA approved Haulier, companies can be confident that each tanker is dedicated to foodstuffs only; meets a strict set of key criteria; that the driver is conversant with the SCOPA Code of Practice for the Transport of Edible Oils and Fats and that a full and accurate record is kept of every load transported in each SCOPA approved tanker.

Each SCOPA approved haulier is audited every 12 months to ensure that they are following the Code of Practice stringently. A list of all SCOPA approved hauliers and the date their Certificate of Approval expires is below:
