To date, ALIA has placed significant focus on the substantial challenges of counterfeit oils and the necessary actions to combat this issue – despite it not ranking high on political priorities. The 2019 ALMU Annual Meeting & Global Leadership Summit include presentations and panel discussions to address the issue of counterfeit oils and current trends – including the many and varied challenges of enforcement.
A White Paper is under development to further the conversation on counterfeit oils. ALIA has also distributed a variety of resources to members on market developments, including compliance considerations, in the form of white papers and presentations.
We have a major initiative underway to promote sustainability within the Asian lubricants industry, following the publication of ALIA’s Sustainability Statement, so far the only such commitment to have been issued by a regional lubricants industry group.
