Type A and B appliances

If you are a commercial business owner in Victoria, it's important to understand the difference between Type A and Type B appliances - and what this means in terms of certification.

 

What is a Type A appliance?

Domestic and light commercial appliances that have an approval badge from the Australian Gas Association (AGA) are Type A appliances. These include cookers, space heaters, central heaters, water heaters, catering equipment and leisure appliances.

 

What is a Type B appliance?

Type B appliances are appliances that do not carry an approval badge from the AGA. These require special certification before they can be installed.

For more information on Type B appliances visit www.esv.vic.gov.au or call ESV directly on (03) 9203 9700.

 

Which procedures are required for Type B appliances and complex installations?

ESV has a procedure to be followed by anyone who would like to install, modify or commission new or second hand Type B appliances or carry out complex gas installation work.

For more information visit www.esv.vic.gov.au or call ESV directly on (03) 9203 9700.
