RUNDU, 17 NOV (NAMPA) The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) has called on petroleum and fuel operators to collect their licences and certificates at the ministry within 60 days of approval.
Minister of Mines and Energy, Obeth Kandjoze in a media statement on Wednesday said the ministry has noticed that applicants of petroleum licences and certificates are not collecting them once issued.
The ministry has given applicants 60 days from the day of issuance to collect their permits and licences to ensure legal approval to operate a fuel outlet.
Failure to collect licences or certificates within the given period will result in the involuntary cancellation of such licence, the statement reads.
It further indicated to the operators to display their licences in a visible place on their premises that will be within the reach of MME inspectors.
Operators not in possession of licences or certificates will be deemed trading illegally and may lose their right to operate.
