KATHMANDU — 48 out of the 55 Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) industries operating in the country have not yet taken the Nepal Standard certification.

Although the government has made the NS certification mark mandatory to all LPG industries, these 48 companies have not heeded to the government’s regulation for safety.

The Bureau of Standards and Metrology in last December had initiated action against LPG industries operating without acquiring the NS certification. They had stated that they would acquire the certification mark within two months but have not done so yet.

Bureau Director-General Bishwa Babu Pudasaini said the number of LPG industries taking the NS certification mark from the Bureau has however increased.
