Some traders selling gas cylinders were suspended after authorities found their cylinders did not meet UAE standards, according to an advisory published on Thursday.

Violators have been caught as the Dubai Supreme Energy Council (DSCE) intensifies its joint inspection campaign of domestic gas cylinders across the emirate.

In addition to formulating a joint action plan to crack down on illegal gas cylinder trading, the inspection team has also established a monitoring mechanism for companies in the industry to ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

DSCE has also launched an proactive awareness campaign on the importance of purchasing LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) cylinders from authorized dealers to ensure the safety of customers.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice-Chairman of DSCE, said: “DSCE aims to regulate commercial conduct, enforce the highest international safety and security standards, and ensure that the transportation, storage and distribution of LPG are in accordance with UAE-approved standards”

“The Supreme Energy Council is the only body in Dubai responsible for all tasks related to issuing licenses for trading in petroleum materials in Dubai, defining tradable petroleum materials and related activities, and supervising and inspecting trade facilities,” he added.
