Gas installations and networks

Who must comply
Gas installations
Operational safety
Distribution systems

Everyone who designs or does work on installations, supply networks, fittings and appliances in New Zealand must ensure they comply with New Zealand’s established regulatory framework. This also applies to everyone who supervises the design or work.

A gas installation comprises the piping, fittings and appliances downstream of the point of supply, which may be a distribution system or a cylinder supply.

In addition to obligations in regards to the construction of an installation, the regulations also place some responsibilities and obligations for the on-going use of the installation.

A person who supplies a gas appliance, installation or fitting must not allow any other person to use the gas appliance, installation or fitting if any part is unsafe.

Natural gas transmission systems transport natural gas from a production facility to distribution systems and end users.
