Apply for a New Device Registration

Fuel metering devices must be registered with TDLR before the device may be used for commercial transactions. A current certificate of registration must be visibly displayed in an area that is accessible to the public.

Suppliers (terminals) are exempt from device registration and device performance review requirements.

Device Performance Review

Before a device can be registered, you must have a licensed service company complete a device performance review (previously called a "calibration report") for each fuel metering device used for commercial transactions.

New applications must include a hardcopy of the most current device performance review. If a device performance review is not included with your application, processing of your device registrations will be delayed.

For more detailed information, please see the device performance review page.
