End of the Road for Paper CoC’s Announced

As of the 1st of April 2023, any Certificate of Conformity (CoC) issued by paper will not be considered valid.

SAQCC Gas is proud to announce the complete digital shift to the issuing of certification by gas practitioners in South Africa. The move comes in the wake of an increase in certification-related incidents of fraud. This is a proactive initiative put in place by the SAQCC Gas, to ensure accountability and safety within the gas industry, only a registered gas practitioner can issue a CoC.

The digital CoC was launched in 2021 and is in line with South African standards, ensuring the gas industry remains one of the safest in the world. SAQCC Gas would like to encourage the end-user to not accept paper CoCs after the 1st of April 2023 and confirm the validity of a gas practitioner’s registration by visiting www.saqccgas.co.za.

Practitioner’s registration cards can also be viewed onsite via the SAQCC Gas App. We call on the gas industry and consumers to report any illegal installations by emailing info@saqccgas.co.za.
At SAQCC Gas we encourage all gas practitioners to download the SAQCC Gas App and register. The process of issuing a digital CoC is quick, simple, and convenient whether you are on or offline. The application has specifically been designed to suit the requirements of our industry and technical support is on hand to assist with any enquiries.
We would like to thank the gas practitioners who have made the transition to issuing digital CoCs effortlessly and look forward to assisting others to do the same.

Yours in Safety,
