|Publication Date:||28 February 2018|
This Standard specifies the requirements for safe, reliable and sustainable management of gas distribution networks operating at less than or equal to 1050 kPa that reticulate gas to consumers.
Appendix A lists the additional requirements for elements of a gas distribution network with a MAOP greater than 1050 kPa as allowed in New Zealand and by legislation in some states of Australia.
The requirements apply to the lifecycle of new gas distribution networks or new assets introduced where existing gas distribution networks are modified or augmented.

(b) the outlet of the consumer's meter assemblies,
