    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies mandatory requirements and means of compliance for the design, installation and commissioning of LP Gas installations in caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard contains the mandatory requirements and means of compliance for the design, installation and commissioning of LP Gas installations in caravans and boats for non-propulsive purposes. It is based on the general installation requirements of AS/NZS 5601.1:2010, Gas installations-General installations. The terms 'caravan' and 'boat' are used to include various types of vehicle or marine craft. The user of this Standard is expected to be familiar with the properties and characteristics of LP Gas and the principles of combustion, ventilation and flueing applicable to the safe installation and operation of gas appliances. The requirements cover - (a) caravans;(b) mobile holiday homes, campervans and motor homes;(c) trucks and trailers incorporating fixed gas installations;(d) boats;(e) houseboats;(f) floating restaurants, whether fixed or mobile; and(g) catering vehicles, whether self-propelled or towed.NOTE: Where commercial catering equipment is to be installed, refer to AS/NZS 5601.1.Where the term 'installation' is used it is deemed to include the pipework, appliances, flues, air ducts and other ancillary items.Section 2 of this Standard contains the mandatory performance criteria requirements for the design, installation, and commissioning of gas installations, except where certain matters are specifically prohibited as inappropriate for reliably meeting these requirements. It includes, in Clauses 2.9.1 and 2.10.1, some specific prohibitions, as the performance requirements cannot be reliably met if those prohibitions are breeched.Sections 3 to 9 of this Standard contain a means of compliance for installations designed to operate with a gas supply pressure not exceeding 3 kPa. In Australia, approval for any variation to the requirements of Sections 3 to 9 or the normative appendices may need to be obtained from the appropriate Technical Regulator.In New Zealand, the Technical Regulator does not provide approvals for variations to the means of compliance in Sections 3 to 9. References to approval by the Technical Regulator are not applicable to New Zealand. The installation certifier is responsible for ensuring that the installation, including any variations, meets the requirements in Section 2.For the application of this Standard in New Zealand only, where a Standard is cited as part of a means of compliance or in an Appendix, any Standard with equivalent performance requirements may be used as an alternative means of compliance.International System of Units (SI) is used in this Standard. NOTE: Appendix A provides a list of conversion factors for other commonly used units.
