At Tubman Heating Limited, we are excited to announce a new service available to our customers across New Zealand: Approved Practitioner Endorsement for Gas Appliances and Fittings.

Gas Applicance Endorsement at Tubman Heating Limited

What is an Approved Practitioner?

An Approved Practitioner is an expert authorized to assess the suitability of gas appliances. Their role is crucial in maintaining safety and regulatory compliance within the gas appliance industry. Specifically, this service applies to small production appliances (21 or fewer supplied annually in New Zealand) and any gas appliances that are part of an imported new or used gas installation.


Why is an Approved Practitioner Endorsement Important?

Importers or manufacturers of small production gas appliances can opt for an endorsement from an Approved Practitioner instead of complying with standard certification requirements. This endorsement confirms that the appliance complies with the relevant regulations and standards, specifically the Gas (Safety and Measurement) Regulations 2010 and NZS 5266. This endorsement must accompany the appliance and be available to WorkSafe upon request.
