RENEWAL OF INSPECTION FOR PETROLEUM ROAD TANKER TRUCKS
The Authority has recently developed an online database for all tankers in The Gambia called the PURA Information System for Tanker Trucks (PISTT).
The 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 an electronic identifier as part of the new inspection regime.
Correspondingly, PURA hereby reminds all tanker truck operators, the public, companies, and individuals who are in the business of petroleum bulk transport by road from the storage depots to petroleum service stations, to file in new inspection application for their vehicles.
In this regard, All Tanker truck operators whose tanker trucks were subjected to these tests and passed or failed since August 2021 are now due for retesting and transporters should endeavor to apply for testing.
All transporters are advised to collect the application forms from PURA during working hours.
Accordingly, the application fee remains the same however, all previously tested vehicles that fail their inspection test would pay the full cost of the re-test.
Please note that any transporter who fails to apply by the 18th March 2022 would face enforcement action which may include not being allowed access to the respective depots.
For further information or inquiry, please call 148 for free.
