Gas

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

All houses with gas stoves or piping require a safety inspection in accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 (Act 85 of 1993) SANS 10087-1.

We inspect amongst other things:

  • location of gas cylinders
  • safety shut-off valves
  • regulators
  • pipes
  • tubes and hoses
  • position of appliances in relation to electrical equipment
  • illegal installations and sources of ignition
  • gas leak and pressure tests are performed

THE CERTIFICATE

In order to issue a gas Certificate of Compliance, the gas installation of a property should be inspected and tested to determine whether it is safe and complies with the current regulations. This inspection is done using gas leakage detection equipment. If the gas installation passes the test and is deemed safe by the inspector, a safety certificate will be issued.

“All CLEAR” INSPECTION

If no faults are identified on the inspection, we will issue the COC, together with our invoice for the inspection fee.

The COC and invoice is then sent to your attorney and a copy to your estate agent.

WHEN FAULTS ARE FOUND

Where faults are identified, these will need to be rectified before the COC can be issued.

We will issue a detailed quotation and our invoice for the inspection fee. Once the faults are rectified, we will issue the COC and submit the invoice for the repairs.
