Petroleum tankers with no license and safety equipment to be locked out of Kenyan roads by June

Road tankers without valid licenses will not be allowed to load or transport petroleum from the 4th of June. This is according to the Energy Regulatory Commission, which insists that all tankers must comply before the deadline.

Speaking during an awareness forum with stakeholders in Mombasa, ERC officials said that the new regulations require all petroleum road tankers to be equipped with proper functioning vehicle tracking devices, and have lines of reflective tape along the cabin. Kenya Accreditation Service (KENAS) says the accreditation of inspection will address road safety, because petroleum road tankers pose the highest risk due to the flammable nature of the products they transport.
