Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association

ACAPMA – Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association is the national peak body representing the interests of the petroleum distribution and petroleum retail industry. The Association is first and foremost an employer organisation that is formally recognised under Australian law as the industrial advocate for fuel marketing and fuel distribution businesses in Australia.

First established in 1976 as the National Council of Petroleum Agents and Distributors Organisation, the Association changed its name to the Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (ACAPMA) in 2007, to better reflect the changed nature of member businesses.

ACAPMA is a Registered Organisation under Fair Work and serves the downstream petroleum industry via the provision of employment services, industry advocacy to government, and networking opportunities to ensure the competitive viability of its members’ businesses.

Our Members

ACAPMA’s members comprise 95% of Australia’s fuel distribution and storage businesses who, in turn, supply fuel to approximately 4,800 of the 6,400 retail fuel outlets operating in Australia.

The scope of ACAPMA’s membership extends from ‘refinery gate’ through to the forecourt of Australia’s national network of service stations and petrol convenience outlets – including fuel wholesale, fuel distributors, fuel retailers, petroleum equipment suppliers and petroleum service providers.

The profile of ACAPMA’s membership ranges from small to medium sized Australian owned enterprises, to large multinational corporations.

ADVOCACY

ACAPMA works on behalf the industry with various Australian governments to ensure that government policy and regulation strikes a balance between the genuine needs of the Australian community and the maintenance of an economically strong industry.

ACAPMA regularly engages with Governments & political parties and authorities on issues ranging from:

  • National competition policy and retail fuel pricing
  • Safety of fuel transport and fuel retail operations
  • Environmental performance of the fuels industry
  • Employment law
  • Alternative fuels market development

Poorly considered regulation has the potential to lessen the value of the industry to the Australian economy and place the employment of more than 54,000 Australians in jeopardy.

As a result, the principal purpose of ACAPMA’s advocacy activity is to guard against unjustified regulation that threatens jobs and places unnecessary upward pressure on retail fuel prices for Australian motorists.
