Overview: The International Forecourt Standards Forum (IFSF) comprises international oil companies promoting equipment interconnectivity and communication standards for use in the petroleum retail business. The IFSF's approach is to work with established professional bodies such as CECOD, the pump/dispenser manufacturer's trade association, and financial institutions, to achieve common standards and, where possible, adopt existing ones. There are two kinds of members in the organization's Technical Interested Parties (TIP) Scheme: technical associates, who are normally suppliers to the oil industry and work with the IFSF working parties, developing, documenting and modifying the standards or incorporating agreed to standards into their products or services; and technical correspondents, who include those people, organizations or companies who require information on the activities of the IFSF, but are not actively in the business of developing IFSF conformant products or services for the oil industry.
