EOLCS申请和费用


Marketers of engine oil must obtain a license from API to use the API Engine Oil Quality Marks: the API Certification Mark "Starburst," the API Certification Mark "Shield" and the API Service Symbol "Donut." The use of the API Marks is a marketer's warranty that its licensed oils comply with the requirements set forth in API 1509 and API's Application for Licensure. The use of the marks also identifies the oil marketer as the marketing organization responsible for the integrity of a brand name and the representation of the branded product in the marketplace.

The license application requires the applicant to certify that its oils meet Engine Oil Licensing and Certification System (EOLCS) requirements. To become licensed, applicants must complete the following steps:

  1. 登录my.api.org.
  2. 确认电子邮件地址
  3. Enter company information
  4. Complete product information for the engine oil or oils to be licensed (brand names, viscosity grades, API service categories, and traceability codes for packaged products). Note that API will not allow licensed company names or brand names that contain any reference to API, API Service Categories, SAE viscosities, or any terms that infer API endorsement (for example, the terms “certified,” “approved,” “licensed,” “accredited,” “endorsed,” “qualified,” “verified,” etc.
  5. Sign the API License Agreement
  6. 生成应用程序发票
  7. 支付申请费并输入必要的付款信息

在API审查提交了至少一个石油(品牌,粘度等级,服务类别或类别和制定数据)之前,在线系统将不允许生成发票。API评论仅在收到完全付款后才会评论应用程序。

申请人可能无法在任何发动机油上显示API服务符号和/或认证标记,或者在申请人已支付申请费后,将石油作为API认证,许可或批准,签署了证明石油符合API要求的许可协议并收到石油已获得许可的API在线系统的通知。
