Australian Standard AS 4575 under revision
The Australian standard for Type A gas appliance servicing AS 4575 is currently being revised.
The revision follows the Coronial Inquest into the death of Sonia Sofianopoulos from carbon monoxide poisoning. The inquest found a need for a combustion products spillage test for open flued appliances.
A draft for public comment was published on Wednesday 24th October. The closing date for public comment is Wednesday 26th December 2018.
ESV will consider mandating this standard through an amendment to the Gas Safety (Gas Installation) Regulations 2018 once the revised standard is published.
