Gas cylinder brand owners should only accept tanks that they own for refills or maintenance.

According to the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA), the move will help curb cases of illegal refilling and unauthorised rebranding.

“The unified valve for domestic LPG cylinders will remain but replace the mandatory interchange of cylinders with a mutual exchange system. This will enhance cost efficiency in the cylinder exchange system and thus improve LPG distribution,” Director General Pavel Oimeke said.

He was speaking when he unveiled the proposed Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) regulations on Tuesday.

Brand owners have also been tasked with ensuring that LPG cylinders are insured such that in case of an incident attributable to the cylinder, the consumer can be compensated.

The authority boss also expressed optimism that the proposed regulations once adopted will boost investment in the sector.

Cool,this sector is growing rapidly,14% per annum is cool,those with capital there is a lot of opportunity(NICHE) in rural kenya where uptake and usage of LPG is still at infancy but growing rapidly,LPG should be encouraged for environment sake,i saw an enviromental report indicating that north and west africa will be unhabitable by 2050 due to climate change.
