Location Test Certificates
Pending changes to government regulations affecting the storage and delivery of LPG
Currently regulations made under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996 (HSNO Act) require the “Person in Charge” of a site holding over 100kg of LPG to have a “Location Test Certificate” (LTC). The LTC needs to be issued by an independent Test Certifier, to demonstrate compliance with LPG storage controls. Effective 2 March 2012, an amendment to those controls means it is an offence for any LPG supplier, including Nova Energy, to deliver LPG to a site with over 100kg of LPG that does not have a current LTC.
Because of that amendment, Nova Energy needs to ensure that all affected customer sites are compliant by 2 March 2012. We will not be able to supply non-compliant sites.
For customer sites with more than 100kg of LPG, Nova Energy would appreciate assistance with establishing compliance with the HSNO Act.
If you have over 100kg of LPG on site and have an LTC please provide a copy for Nova Energy’s records.
If you have over 100kg of LPG on site and do not have a valid LTC please choose one of the options provided below. It is essential that you communicate your LTC position to Nova Energy prior to 2 March 2012 to ensure uninterrupted LPG supply.
1. Contact an independent Test Certifier directly and arrange an LTC and then supply a copy to Nova Energy for our records. A selection of independent Test Certifiers can be found at www.epa.govt.nz
2. Engage Nova Energy’s “Easy LTC Service” (refer below for additional detail and terms and conditions). With this service, Nova Energy will facilitate testing at any non-compliant sites and assist in keeping compliant sites up-to-date, on an ongoing basis. This service takes all the hassle away and costs just $5.50 +GST per month for sites between 100kg and 300kg, anf $16.50 +GST per month for sites 300kg and greater.
