The Gas (Safety & Measurement) Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) set out the obligations for people supplying gas products in NZ. The Regulations require that the supplier (either an importer or a NZ manufacturer) of any appliance must ensure they register on the Gas Appliance Supplier Declaration database (GASD) before they supply or offer for sale that appliance. The 2010 requirements apply to appliances imported or NZ manufactured after 1 July 2013.

There are other requirements in the Regulations in regard to meeting the cited appliance certification and also marking requirements. The GASD requirements do not apply to people who import the appliance for their “own use” or to appliances that have been endorsed.
