FCCC Warns, Issues Notices to LPG Traders

5 Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)  traders have been issued Infringement notices and 2 traders have been warned for prosecution by the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) after they were found to be noncompliant with the retail price set by the Commission.
FCCC conducted 278 inspections of LPG traders around the country following a drop in LPG prices issued by the Commission which came into effect on 15 October 2019.
“Failure to comply with the prices set by FCCC is a very serious breach of the FCCC Act 2010 and any trader found doing this will be taken to task by the Commission.

We will not tolerate anyone attempting to take advantage of Fijians,” said FCCC CEO, Joel Abraham.
“For many Fijians, LPG is an essential commodity used for cooking and taking advantage of this is both unethical and illegal.”
FCCC inspection teams found a 97% compliance level by LPG traders.
“It’s encouraging to see that most traders have complied with the law and the Commission would like to commend all law-abiding traders for playing their part in protecting Fijian consumers,” Abraham said.
“FCCC works closely with all Fijian consumers, including traders, to raise awareness and ensure that all parties are compliant and protected when it comes to consumer issues.”
FCCC is Fiji’s sole competition regulator and is in charge of assessing prices for price-controlled items as well as ensuring that businesses comply with set prices under the authority of the FCCC Act 2010.
