Certification and Compliance

LPG / Gas Appliances

Any caravan or RV fitted with any type of LP Gas appliances, you are required to have a Gas System Compliance Certificate issued by a holder of an LP Gas Licence. A compliance certificate is also required in order to register your vehicle.

The Australian Standard for LP Gas installation is AS5601.  A certificate of currency must be issued each time a caravan is sold, even if the certificate issued with the previous sale is less than three months old. A new inspection must be carried out and new certification issued should at any time any repair or alteration be done to the original LP Gas installation.

Only a licenced LP Gas Fitter may carry out work on any part of a gas installation including the removal and replacement of appliances.

Ventilation

Ventilation is often taken for granted and if there is a door or window fitted, that is sufficient.  Not so.  Correct ventilation is critical as part of any caravan or motor home design and compliance. This is to prevent excessive build-up from the products of combustion, condensation, or other toxic conditions, such as carbon monoxide (CO).

Electrical

All caravans and motor homes are fitted with an electrical system, which may include road-lights, a 12-volt system and/or a 240 volt system. Often batteries, solar panels, generators and other electrical equipment is installed. Is your vehicle earthed correctly, are circuit breakers fitted correctly, ensure your vehicle is compliant?
