CONTACT Us : 083 5925450 Gas has such a high potential risk associated with its distribution and use that governments regulate to control the standard of the product and to ensure the safe application of gas. There are minimum standards of safe work practices, safe installation and maintenance methods, that components and appliances and energy installations and suppliers meet for satisfactory safety and technical outcomes for the community.
a means by which regulatory outcomes can be satisfied. For example, the regulations may say as an outcome that safety must be achieved and the standards then develop and define what is safe in the particular context and how it may be achieved - the regulations say gas appliances must be safe and the standards say that one element of safety is that the appliance does not produce more than a specified safe level of carbon monoxide (CO).
industry based with broad stakeholder input, so they represent the industry practice that is followed to deliver the regulatory requirements.
not a substitute for regulations. The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) highlights the importance of not passing regulatory powers to standards writers.
not a restriction to international trade. Wherever possible standards should be international and not contain local requirements at a cost to the community and make it harder to sell overseas.
not an inhibition on innovation. Standards should set an outcome and not prescribe the solution. While prescription gives regulatory certainty it is not flexible or able to accommodate technological development.
For gas, some standards are mandatory - they have the force of law. However, most standards are advisory, based on good industry practice that the community expects.
