Govt in a move to curb fuel fraud has assigned a private company for the checking
The government has decided to inspect and monitor the accuracy of fuel service station units, in a move to restraint fuel fraud and has appointed a private company to do the checking on its behalf.
Pre-defined standards and rules must be adhered to by each unit at fuel service stations, with each fuel station operator being required by law to perform calibration annually.
Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri HamzahZainuddin said, "There have been suggestions that the government conduct enforcement at every fuel service station to ensure the meters tally with the amount of fuel dispensed. In this regard, we have appointed a company to make sure that all units are in accordance with the rules and regulations.The company will also check the fuel units when it is due for inspection."
