Acceptance of a complex gas installation

As the regulator for gas safety, ESV is responsible for ensuring that all new and existing gas installations are safe and meet requirements as stated in applicable Acts and Regulations.

ESV accepts applications for acceptance for all complex gas installations and Type B gas appliances (previously known as an ESV Start Work and Compliance Notice) from licensed gas professionals.

For all completed standard gas installations licensed gasfitters must lodge a Compliance Certificate with the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) after it has been issued to the owner/occupier.
