Gas Appliances committee – update

The joint Australian and New Zealand standards committee AG-001 Gas appliances has made good progress and is scheduled to meet again this month. The standards are progressing well and the initial public comment phase has now closed.

John Swarbrick, Technical and Compliance Manager for Rinnai, says the New-Zealand only parts of the standards will be put into a New Zealand specific appendix.

‘We decided to place all of the NZ requirements into an appendix as this was more straightforward during the standards drafting process. This will allow appliances that are sold only in New Zealand to gain certification for a specific NZ-only requirement.’

Summarised from Gasline, December 2014.
