Safer outcomes for gas and electrical work

Changes to gas and electrical certification regimes are expected to lead to safer outcomes for consumers.

Amended regulations were published in the New Zealand Gazette on 27 September and are the result of a review of the regimes to ensure they provide cost-effective public safety outcomes.

Improvements to the certification regimes are expected to raise standards in the gas and electricity industries while doing away with unnecessary compliance costs.

Ministers Heatley and Williamson jointly issued an announcement on the cabinet decision.
