New Regulations for Petroleum Products

BNSF will add the following language to all Petroleum Products price authorities, as well as to BNSF Rules Book 6100 and price authority BNSF 90010:

      Please be aware that, in accordance with State and/or Federal regulations, BNSF may be required from time to time in the future to submit certain information to government agencies relating to your fuel purchases. This information includes primarily the name of the shipper, the consignee, the payer of freight, the type of fuel, the quantity of fuel, and the waybill number for fuel products that either originate or terminate in certain states.

      Accordingly, it is Customer's responsibility to ensure that it or its Consignee's shipment information is accurately recorded when submitted to BNSF and Customer acknowledges
      that the shipment information may be relied upon by BNSF in external reporting required by applicable laws and regulations.

We appreciate your assistance in providing the correct information on your shipping instructions.
