VLS Bulletin


VLS 010166 – SCT Vertriebs GmbH Mannol Longlife 504/507 5W-30 Engine Oil


On 08/09/2020 the case was reported to VLS.


The case concerned a complaint about the number of OEM claims made on the product for which, it was alleged, no current additive pack existed in the marketplace that could meet all the claims made. The product received an official approval from VW on 8th June 2019 against its standard 504 00/507 00.


The product also makes a number of other marketing claims against other manufacturer specifications, including VW 505 01, which fall short of formal OEM approvals. In line with the VLS marketing claims procedure VLS asked the Named Party to provide the Candidate Data Pack and a letter of support from their additive company supporting the claims made.


The Named Party provided a reblend approval to the formulation from their technology provider along with a copy of the Candidate Data Pack. VLS then worked with the Named Party to rationalise the number of claims made to reflect the official approval obtained,


VLS undertook a six month review of the case and concluded that the product was in continued compliance at this stage. Consequently the complaint has been met and the case resolved.


David Wright, Company Secretary - VLS (UK) Ltd says “We want to ensure we have the highest standards in Europe for lubricant manufacture, blending and marketing, and we want a ‘level playing field’ for all participants, so that we protect the interests of the consumer and other end users.


In the Verification of Lubricant Specifications (UK) Ltd, we have set our course for stronger industry self-regulation by working positively towards more open and transparent competition that benefits all lubricant organisations. By working with the sector to resolve non compliant products in an independent and impartial manner, we can support companies to compete on a more equitable basis in a highly competitive marketplace.”
