SANS 10134
Updated earlier this year and now released.

This had gone out for public comment and had been circulated to all FFETA members with particular attention to regulations 18 and 19 which are pertinent to the fire industry. The comment period has now closed so watch this space.

As all gas test stations are aware, there has been changes in the SANS 1825 standard. SANAS requires gas test stations to transition from the old standard to the new, posing challenges in the process. That is one of the reasons during the last FFETA Executive meeting, it had been agreed to set up a group for FFETA members who had a SANAS Gas test station whereby relevant information could be disseminated for the benefit of those members. This is being headed up by Lizl Davel, our FFETA committee member based in Cape Town. An email was circulated to all members and if you are interested but had not responded previously, please contact Lizl at
