Gas Certificates of Compliance
On the 15th July 2009 new regulations in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1993 were published governing “Pressure Equipment Regulations”. In terms of the same there is now a duty on the homeowner to hold an external inspection and leak test after the installation and before the commissioning of a gas system. The same can only be done by authorised persons who must issue a certificate of conformity after the completion of a gas installation, modification, alteration or change of user or ownership. The certificate is transferable. Unless special conditions arise and are agreed to, the seller is responsible for obtaining the Gas Certificate of Compliance.
