Cofek will, jointly with the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA), conduct a Consumers Dialogue Forum (CDF) webinar on implementation of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) regulations on Monday, June 15, 2020 from 8.30 am to 11.30 am.
The CDF session will seek to accord consumers and various other stakeholders an opportunity to relay their experience on the set of laws.
Panelists will include the EPRA director general Mr Pavel Oimeke and other experts on LPG. The forum will focus on stakeholders in Isiolo, Wajir, Mandera, Wajir and other Northern Kenya counties.
Some of the forbidden actions including refilling of a cylinder by a person or entity other than the brand owner or refilling of a cylinder without the prior written consent from the brand owner provided that such consent shall have been submitted to the Authority.
Refilling of a cylinder that does not bear the embossed markings of the brand or trade name or is defaced, tampered or bears illegible markings; or refilling of a cylinder from a facility or such other source that is not licensed by the regulator constitutes a punishable offence.
The forum will further seek to create an opportunity for information, education and awareness on the provisions of the law. Other issues of importance will revolve around quality, safety and seamless access to LPG.
