Gas Certification

From 1/7/13 all imported or newly manufactured caravans must have a NZ legal gas certificate, this amongst many other things involves registering all the gas appliances within the caravan (usually about 5) with the energy safety council, a full check on the pipework is required to ensure it’s the correct dia and no leaks, adequate ventilation is required etc.

This is a bit of a minefield at the moment with even the gas people not being 100% sure what is required and as caravans fall into the ‘high risk’ category not many gas people will touch a caravan/camper.

Gas is best left to people who know about gas as often the 1st indication you have to a gas problem is the smell the 2nd is when your eyebrows and fringe disappear along with the side of your caravan.

We have been having our caravans certified from the day we started even before it was FORTUNATLY we know of certified gas fitters that can undertake the work and certify it, law so if you need any work or advise on gas requirements we can help you out.
