The Fuels Information Regulations, No. 1 were adopted in 1977 to provide Environment Canada with information regarding liquid fuel composition, particularly concerning SO2 emissions from combustion.

The regulations apply to all fuels in liquid form that originate from crude oils, coal or bituminous sands.
