PURA engages stakeholder on new information system for tanker trucks


The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority PURA on Thursday oriented stakeholders in the petroleum transport sector on its newly developed Information System for Tanker Trucks PISTT at the Baobab Hotel in Bijilo.

 PISTT is a web-based application introduced to help PURA track licence application processes, inspections, vehicle information of tanker trucks, testing and production of tested reports. This is in line with the Authority’s petroleum regulatory mandate.

 The newly developed information system also captures information of tanker truck drivers and crew members.


 “As we migrate to a new application database, it is critical to note that the system is trustworthy, user friendly and allows applicants to quickly login and submit their applications or input inspection results for speedy application process. The PURA Information System for tanker trucks displays a dashboard that allows people to visualise upcoming vehicle renewals, recent vehicle scans and alerts of new applicants” PURA DG Yusupha M Jobe said in his welcome address at the opening of the forum.

 According to DG Jobe, the new database is flexible and  and provides different workflows geared towards improving the speed of the application process.

 The Managing Director of Petroleum Automotive and General Engineering Services (PAGES), Ebrima Jallow told participants that the newly introduced PURA information system for tanker trucks database is fast and transparent. Jallow encouraged petroleum transporters to be more cooperative in order to ease their work.

 He also extended gratitude and appreciation to PURA for its proactive engagement of its stakeholders, especially in the petroleum sector, saying such convergence is highly needed to provide solutions in certain issues revolving in the regulatory sector.

Hamadi Jeng, a participant and representative for Painter -Man Transport Limited thanked PURA for the introduction of the new information system.

He urged the Authority to continuously conduct similar forums to enable them (petroleum transporters) to understand critical issues in the sector.
