I ……………………………………………………. ID Number ………………………..………………………

The undersigned, as a registered and authorised Gas Practitioner shall:

1. Undertake only those assignments which fall within my authorized level of registration and scope of work for which I am competent by virtue of training, experience and certification. Where warranted, advise the engagement of such specialists who are required to facilitate the completion of the assignment.

2. Prior to undertaking any maintenance, repairs, alterations and/or additions to existing equipment and/or pipelines installed on customer premises, I must first establish the ownership of the equipment and/or pipelines. This is necessary to ensure that the owner of the equipment and/or pipelines carries out the necessary work or employs a third party registered gas practitioner to carry out the work on their behalf.

3. Indicate to my employer, supervisor or mentor any adverse consequence that may result from an alteration to the designed installation by a non-technical authority or client.

4. Be objective, thorough and factual in any written report, statement or testimony of the work performed and include all relevant or pertinent information in such documents.

5. Sign only for work I have personally carried out or work supervised for which I have personal knowledge through direct technical control or supervision.

6. Have proper regard for the safety, health and environment concerning the user, the public and the fellow employees.

7. Protect to the fullest extent possible, constant with the well being of the gas industry and public, any information given in confidence to me by my employer, supervisor, colleague, client or this gas association.

8. Strive to maintain proficiency by updating my personal technical knowledge and skills as required to efficiently and effectively apply the desired application skills as required by an authorised gas practitioner within the respective gas industry.

9. Maintain the highest degree of personal integrity, credibility and business ethics at all times.

10. Report any unsafe practices, sub-standard work and non registered practitioners to the SAQCC Gas.
