Although you may have 30 years in the gas fitting trade, it pays to keep up with the current regulations and standards where necessary. I too have seen shocking installations in Australia and New Zealand and try to advise the owner if it is a potential danger.

Over pressure protection is required as per AS5601.2-2013 clause 2.7.9 it’s insane to trust your BBQ regulator to protect you in your camper van, 1 grain of sand caught on the regulator seat or an overfilled cylinder and you have the potential for over 500 times the normal working pressure to be escaping thru your appliances. I’ve seen many single stage regulators fail and how it destroys the gas rail cocks & oven thermostat on stoves.

I have all the relevant standards 2004,2010 & 2013 & do my best to keep abreast of any changes, I can even tell you why the 2010 & 2013 standards are not accepted by the NSW technical regulator. All my installations are done to best practice standards which is why I wouldn’t use a single stage regulator or unprotected copper pipe even if the code did allow it.
