    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for the safe composition, transportation and supply of general purpose natural gas for use in natural gas appliances and equipment, and for use as fuel in natural gas vehicles.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for the safe composition, transportation and supply of general purpose natural gas for use in natural gas appliances and equipment, and for use as fuel in natural gas vehicles.The Standard applies to natural gas that is - (a) from petroleum, landfill, biogas, coal seam and other sources where these sources provide gas for direct or blended supply on a commercial basis through supply systems serving general purpose customers; and(b) transported and supplied to users for use in natural gas appliances and equipment complying with the relevant Standards. This includes natural gas powered vehicles, natural gas compressors and refuelling facilities.NOTE: Appendices A, B and C provide further information and guidance on the derivation of the requirements, additional issues to be considered in contracts and test methods to verify compliance.
