What's this about?

The Gas and Electricity (Consumer Safety) Regulation 2018 has been developed to replace the existing Electricity (Consumer Safety) Regulation 2015 and captures some of the provisions of the Gas Supply (Consumer Safety) Regulation 2012.

The proposed regulation supports the Gas and Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2017. The Act provides minimum consumer safety standards and requirements for both gas and electrical equipment and installations and provides a consistent compliance and enforcement regime for gas and electricity consumer safety.

It aims to ensure the safe use of these goods by consumers in NSW and outlines standards for electrical, gasfitting and autogas work and industry maintenance of electrical and gas installations.

The draft regulation and Regulatory Impact Statement is available to read on the NSW Fair Trading website.
