    On 11 January 2024, a new set of requirements came into force, focussed on the downstream transport fuel industry, and designed to ensure core fuel sector resilience in the UK, in particular that (i) economic activity in the UK is not adversely affected by disruptions to core fuel sector activities; and (ii) the risk of emergencies affecting fuel supplies is reduced.
