Accreditation of a Person to Install and Repair CNG Fuel Systems in Motor Vehicles - Victoria

Service summary

You will require this accreditation if you intend to install or repair Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuel systems in motor vehicles. This accreditation exists to ensure CNG fuel systems are installed safely.

All CNG installations must comply with the requirements of Australian Standard AS/NZS 2739 and be fitted with an acceptable natural gas compliance plate. Compliance plates are only issued to Victorian businesses that are registered with the Automotive Alternative Fuels Registration Board (AAFRB).

Accreditation with the AAFRB allows you to carry out CNG conversions, service and repair work on motor vehicles in AAFRB registered workshops. Restricted accreditation is also available, which authorises you to perform service and repair work only on CNG fuel systems in AAFRB registered workshops.

Repair work means work that involves opening the high pressure CNG lines to the atmosphere.

Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
