The Competition Authority of Kenya has allowed suppliers and distributors of cooking gas to mutually exchange their cylinders for a period of five years.

In gazette notice Friday, CAK allowed small-scale suppliers and distributors of cooking gas brands across the country to have their members increase their cylinder count by at least 10,000 per year per depot.

The exemption will see consumers allowed to exchange their empty cylinders with a different brand as long one is a member of the association.

The revised energy regulations of 2009 were effected in June 2019, abolishing the mandatory cylinder exchange pool, putting firms in charge of their cylinders following cases of unsafe refilling.

The energy dealers association comprising 32 small-scale suppliers and distributors had in February last year requested to be exempted from the rules for 10 years.
