DEF Tracker follows a strict reporting methodology, which dictates the data collection procedure and sets minimum thresholds for reporting pricing information. Market information is sourced from extensive conversations with DEF manufacturers, distributors and end users. DEF Tracker is published three working days before the end of each month.
The approach has been developed from over six years’ experience reporting AdBlue (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) data in Europe and experience of a variety of commodities markets.
