Fuel price reporting
Fuel retailers must register for the Fuel Pricing Information Scheme by 18 March 2021. Registration will open 17 February 2021.
From 19 March 2021, fuel retailers must report their fuel prices to the central database/aggregation system.
Fuel retailers in South Australia must report their fuel prices to a central database - known as the aggregation system.
Data publishers can then publish fuel price information via their apps and websites, so that motorists can check and compare fuel prices in their local area.
Fuel retailers must report the following information via the aggregation system:
- a change to their fuel prices, within 30 minutes from the price changing at the bowser
- if a fuel type is unavailable - either temporarily or permanently - within 30 minutes.

Information for fuel retailers
You must be registered for the fuel pricing information scheme. You can register your details with Consumer and Business Services through the aggregation system.
The aggregator will provide detailed guidance about using the aggregation system once you have registered for the scheme.
Reporting fuel data
You must report your fuel prices and any fuel unavailability using the aggregation system.
There are four ways you can report:
- enter the details for each fuel type directly into the aggregation system
- upload the data via an application programming nterface (API) or flat file
- arrange for a third-party agent to upload bulk data on your behalf, if you own multiple petrol stations
- phone the aggregator on 8356 1020 if an internet connection isn't available.
