Updating the references to standards in the electricity and gas safety regulations

21 April 2021 18:55 | Daniel Muller (Administrator)

From the MBIE Website:

"We are proposing to amend the Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010 and the Gas (Safety and Measurement) Regulations 2010 so they reference up-to-date standards and reflect the latest international certification and conformance regimes.

What we are doing

We want to hear your views on the proposed changes, and the impacts these may have on you or your business.

We are proposing updates and changes to over three hundred of the standards currently cited in the regulations. This includes updates to currently cited standards, the removal of withdrawn standards, and the introduction of new standards, particularly in the area of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

We are also proposing a series of changes to reflect new international standard setting bodies established since the regulations were last updated.

The rationale for these changes, and discussion of some of the less straightforward changes, is detailed in the discussion document.
