The online system will not permit an invoice to be generated until at least one oil (brand, viscosity grade, service category or categories and formulation data) has been submitted for API review. API reviews applications only after complete payment has been received.
An applicant may not display the API Service Symbol and/or Certification Mark on any engine oil or refer to the oil as API certified, licensed or approved until the applicant has paid the application fee, signed the license agreement certifying that the oil meets API requirements, and received notice from the API online system that the oil has been licensed.

The newEOLCS费用结构- 2017年12月1日的效果 - 如下所示，可以下载。许可费每年审查并有所变化。
|License application fee||$4,500|
|License renewal fee||$4,500|
[Note that the application and renewal fees are per license, not per engine oil. For example, if an oil marketer submits an application for one oil, the application fee is $4,500. If the marketer submits an application for more than one oil, the application fee is still just $4,500.]
Benefits from API licensing include association with the 2016 campaign; independent verification of the quality of licensed oils sold in the marketplace; listing in the real-time on-line Directory of EOLCS licensees; participation in programs to ensure precision of new tests used to qualify oils; and rights to use the API quality marks (the API Service Symbol Donut and Certification Mark Starburst), symbols of quality that identify licensed engine oils to consumers. This includes using the marks on licensed oil packages, in media, and on promotional materials.
