Ensuring Gas Safety: SAQCC Gas Certification for Property Transfers


When it comes to properties equipped with gas installations, ensuring safety is paramount. Gas compliance certificates are crucial for property transfers to confirm that gas installations meet safety standards. However, the issuance of these certificates should only be entrusted to qualified professionals. To address this concern, the South African Qualification and Certification Committee (SAQCC) Gas was established as a Non-Profit Company. This entity collaborates with four Member Associations to maintain a centralized database of registered and authorized Gas Practitioners.

Why SAQCC Gas Exists:

SAQCC Gas exists to guarantee the competence and reliability of technicians responsible for gas installations. Gas systems, including natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, air conditioning and refrigeration gas, as well as compressed industrial and medical gases, pose significant safety risks if not handled correctly. Therefore, the SAQCC Gas, in collaboration with Member Associations such as the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association of South Africa (LPGSA), Southern Africa Compressed Gases Association (SACGA), South African Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractors Association (SARACCA), and Southern African Gas Association (SAGA), works diligently to register and authorize gas practitioners.

What SAQCC Gas Does:

SAQCC Gas, with the endorsement of the Department of Employment and Labour, oversees the registration process for gas practitioners. The company ensures that only qualified individuals are entrusted with gas-related tasks through its centralized database. This not only safeguards the integrity of gas installations but also enhances overall safety standards in the industry.


In essence, SAQCC Gas plays a vital role in upholding gas safety standards in South Africa. It collaborates with Member Associations, regulating the registration of gas practitioners, and ensuring that only competent professionals handle gas installations. This not only mitigates the risk of accidents but also fosters confidence in gas-related transactions, particularly during property transfers. Through its efforts, SAQCC Gas contributes significantly to safeguarding lives and properties across the nation.
