Description

Legislative changes in 1992 removed the responsibility for inspection and certification of gas installations from the gas suppliers and instituted a regime of gas certification by a person authorized under the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drain layers Act.

This Standard in Part 1 details the various aspects of a gas installation that contribute to its safety, stating performance criteria that shall be achieved to ensure that the legislative requirements for safety of gas installations are met. Part 2 gives the gasfitter more detailed information as a means of compliance with these performance criteria for small installations, and Part 3 gives references for use in the design and specification of larger installations.

The means of compliance in Parts 2 and 3 are not the only means of compliance with the performance criteria in Part 1. Gas installations should be undertaken by persons authorized under the Plumber Gasfitters and Drain layers Act 1976.  Cited in the Ministry's Simple House Acceptable Solution.

Scope

This Standard contains the mandatory requirements and means of compliance for the design, installation and commissioning of gas installations that are associated with the use or intended use of fuel gases as defined in the Gas Act. These requirements cover gas installations downstream of the outlet of:

  • (a) The consumer billing meter installation;
  • (b) The first regulator on a fixed gas installation where an LPG container is installed on the same site; or
  • (c) The first regulator on site (if no meter is installed) where LPG is reticulated from storage off the site; and for which the gas supply pressure does not exceed 700 kPa. Part 1 of this Standard contains the mandatory performance criteria for the design, installation, and commissioning of gas installations.

Part 2 of this Standard contains a means of compliance for gas installations with appliances and equipment generally under 250 MJ/h (70 kW). Part 3 of this Standard contains a means of compliance for gas installations with appliances and equipment generally over 250 MJ/h (70 kW). It may be used as the basis for design of one-off gas appliances and large gas installations in compliance with Part 1 of this Standard.
