Update on the amendments to Gas Safety Regulations.

Media Release Logo (1)

Gas (Safety and Measurement) Regulations 2010 are being updated so they reference up-to-date standards and reflect the latest international certification and conformance regimes.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment (MBIE) and WorkSafe have reviewed stakeholder feedback submitted on the proposed updates to citations in the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010, and the Gas (Safety and Measurement) Regulations 2010.

The proposed updates relate to currently cited Standards, the removal of withdrawn Standards, and the introduction of new Standards, particularly around electric vehicle charging infrastructure. MBIE also proposed a series of changes to reflect new international Standard-setting bodies established since the regulations were last updated. 

MBIE and WorkSafe are in the process of preparing advice to Ministers on the changes required in both sets of regulations. We will continue to keep you updated. For more information read here: Updating the references to standards in the electricity and gas safety regulations.
