Small Filling Station Certificate - Western Australia


You will require this certificate if you operate a small filling station and you intend to sell goods other than fuel, car accessories or certain other essentials outside of general retail shop trading hours. A filling station is a business which sells fuel, and uses any pump or other device to supply fuel (e.g. a petrol bowser). This approval allows you to sell a larger range of non-petroleum goods outside normal shop trading hours.

You will not require this approval to trade outside normal trading hours if your business is located north of the 26th parallel or a transport terminal or station where public passenger transport services are running.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
