The specified country-specific sulfur bandwidths only apply for the point in time when they were determined between winter 2013/2014 and winter 2015/2016. It must be assumed that there will be a reduction in sulfur content in the future, not an increase.

Countries with multiple classifications offer fuel grades with various sulfur content at the same time. At a sulfur content > 1000 mg/kg these are listed on Sheet 136.1. No information is available for countries that are not listed.
