REGISTRATION OF ALL PETROLEUM ROAD TANKERS IN THE GAMBIA
The Gambia Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) has recently developed an online database for all tanker trucks in The Gambia called the PURA Information System for Tanker Trucks (PISTT).
This system allows for a national database of vehicles and keeps track of all vehicle Licensing and inspection regimes. Each vehicle would now be issued with a QR Code identifier as part of the new inspection regime.
Correspondingly, PURA hereby reminds all tanker truck operators, the public, all companies, and individuals who are in the business of petroleum bulk transport by road from the storage depots to petroleum service stations, that commencing on the 1st of May 2021, all Tanker Trucks are required to attach their QR Codes to their vehicles in order to access the depots at Mandinary.
In this regard, all Tanker truck operators whose trucks have not been registered in the new system and issued QR codes should endeavour to do so during working hours at PURA.
Please note that any transporter who fails to collect their QR Codes by the 1st of May 2022 will not be allowed access to the respective depots.
