-Appointment enables BSI to support gas manufacturers to access the Australian and New Zealand markets-
BSI, the business improvement company has today announced it has been appointed as a gas product certification body by Australian and New Zealand Gas Technical Regulators Committee (GTRC), Australian and New Zealand Regulators.
Before placing gas appliances and related components on the market in Australia or New Zealand, manufacturers must ensure their products carry Gas Compliance Mark or New Zealand Gas Safety Compliance Label. This appointment will enable BSI to provide this mandatory Australian Gas Safety (AGS) certification for its clients globally. BSI will now be able to undertake the required testing against the relevant Australian and New Zealand Standards and issue a JAS ANZ accredited gas certification certificate for products.
Graham McKay, Global Head of Gas and Electrical Products at BSI commented:
“BSI is committed to supporting manufacturers to ensure that their products are ready to market in Australasia. This appointment is a key step for our global clients who can now get their gas appliances certified by BSI for Australia, New Zealand, UK, Europe and MEA by working with a single certification body.
“Our teams are fully prepared to help organizations demonstrate that their products comply with the relevant National, Regional and / or International standards.”
BSI has achieved JAZ-ANZ (The Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand) accreditation which means that it has been assessed against internationally recognized standards and operates at the highest levels of quality and service - providing further assurance to clients that the certificates issued are both credible and impartial.
