Like all things legal, there’s a whole quagmire of information, misinformation, FUD, fear-mongering and Trump-style fake news out there.
If we peel back the layers, there really are only two areas of focus in the law that we can consider first principles:
- Registration of appliances on the safe list database
- Location of cylinders
Obviously there is a ton of other compliance regulations that need to be met before an installation can be considered compliant, but it is incumbent on the installer rather than the consumer to be aware of these.
You as the consumer need to be confident that the appliance you are installing is registered as a compliance-tested appliance in SA. And you may need to get involved in the installation process when it comes to the location of the bottles. Pretty much everything else is business as usual.
