Gas fitters are required to be licensed to carry out any work in Australia, regardless of the value of the job. This is to ensure that all work is carried out to standard, and is also an important health and safety consideration. Gas fitting is defined as any work on a connection to a gas installation. In some states gas fitters are regulated by the plumbing authorities. In addition there are also supervisor, contractor and tradesperson classes of this licence. Each class has specific stipulations as to the type of work they can carry out.
Licensing of trade professionals was introduced to protect you from untrained and unqualified operators. Unlicensed work is not only unlawful; it may also place the health and safety of you and family at risk.
