NEW OBLIGATIONS NOW IN FORCE FOR SUPPLIERS TO TACKLE GAS THEFT

New Ofgem rules come into force yesterday to ensure energy suppliers do more to detect, prevent and investigate gas theft.
Gas theft puts lives at risk and increases the cost of gas for customers. Research estimates that theft costs £138 million, or around £6 per household per year.
The new regulations Ofgem has set down require gas suppliers to be more proactive in detecting, preventing and investigating gas theft. Suppliers are also required to set up a new body to help improve theft detection by March 2014.
