Q166.The quantity of petroleum product that I import is determined by a third party gauger who is approved by Customs & Border Protection (CBP). How should I comply with the quantity determination requirements in §98.393(a)?
A166. If the third party gauger uses a standard method published by a consensus-based organization to determine quantity, then you should report that method. If a CBP-approved third party gauger concludes that an appropriate consensus-based standard does not exist and uses an industry standard practice to determine quantity, then EPA will defer to the CBP-approved gauger's judgment that no existing consensus-based standard is appropriate for the situation. In such a case, you may report the industry standard practice that the inspector followed.
