According to regulation, any home-owner who has a L.P.G. installation in their home, must have a Gas Certificate of Conformity issued by an authorized person who is registered with the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of Southern Africa (LPGAS).
After an initial inspection we will either issue a CoC stating that the installation is compliant according to SANS code 10087-1, Should corrective work be required to make the installation compliant we will provide an obligation free quotation to rectify what was found to be non-compliant as indicated above.
It is also important for homeowners to know that although a CoC does not expire, on change of ownership or alteration of the installation a new CoC is required. However, many installations are fed LPG from outside the building and in those cases the suns UV could deteriorate components over time therefor It is recommended you have your installation checked annually.
The types of gas installations that require certificates of compliance include all fixed installations i.e. Gas braais, fires places, stoves, ovens and hot water / geyser installations. It is vital for all homeowners to realize that such an inspection is not just essential for their insurance policy to remain valid, but even more importantly, that it is conducted to ensure that the installation is safe and working.
L.P.G. is very safe and cost effective however, should the installation be done incorrectly it can become dangerous.
