Theessential requirements for safe and good practices in gas service work have been enhanced with key changes in the requirements of pipework, radiography examination and records keeping etc.SS 608 is applicable to new gas installations as well as addition and alteration to existing gas installations. It covers design, materials, installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance of gas installations and appliances. Compliance with the requirements specified in the standard is mandatory as stipulated in theGas Act.
