The government has recently announced a nationwide registration exercise for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and petroleum businesses.
The registration drive, which will commence on Tuesday April 3, 2023, and end on Friday April 14, 2023, is a joint initiative between the State Department for Internal Security and National Administration and the State Department for Petroleum.
It will be carried out in all sub-counties by National Government Administration Officers (NGAOs) in collaboration with the Energy & Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
The primary objective of the registration exercise is to improve the management and regulation of LPG and petroleum businesses in the country while ensuring that they comply with safety regulations.
The registration drive will require the collection of data and information from all LPG and petroleum businesses, including service stations, dealers, traders, distributors, and manufacturers.
In a press release issued by the two Principal Secretaries, Dr. Raymond Omollo and Mr. Mohamed Liban, it was stated that the registration drive would help to reduce the risk of accidents and safeguard the public from substandard products and services.
They also affirmed that the government remained committed to ensuring the safety and security of all citizens and the effective regulation of the petroleum sector.
The government urged all LPG and petroleum operators to participate in the registration exercise and warned that all unregistered LPG and petroleum businesses would be deemed non-operational after the registration period.
The registration exercise is a vital step in enhancing the regulation and management of the petroleum sector and ensuring the safety of all citizens.
