While the implementation of tough regulations which are aimed at dealing with the rising illegal trading in Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Kenyans found selling cooking gas without a receipt will attract a fine of Sh50,000.

The receipt must contain the name and mobile number of the seller, contacts of the buyer, cylinder brand, date of sale as well as serial numbers of the seal and gas container.

The new rules now means cylinders will be tracked from the retailer to homes, with the records expected to be stored for at least one year.

Transportation of gas cylinders according to the regulations before Parliament will only allow three cylinders in a car. The rules also provide for a Sh10 million fine for those discharging bulk gas in a location that lacks regulatory approval.

Gas marketers will be enabled to track their cylinders by the use of a Radio Frequency Identification or a quick response code or any other regulation included in the regulations set to be discussed by Parliament.

You will also pay more than Sh1 million for selling gas without permits or transporting the commodity in a vehicle not approved by the energy regulator.

Failing to keep gas cylinder records for more than year will  also attract you a fine of Sh50,000 for each offence.
