Relevant Legislation

Application of the Law

The Gas Supply Act 1993 (“the Act”) and Gas Supply Regulations 1997 (“the Regulations”) came into force on 17 July 1998. Gas Malaysia is regulated and licensed by the EC to supply reticulated Natural Gas and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (“LPG”).

The gas legislation provides a regulatory framework where both the government and industry players are expected to be responsible in ensuring the economy, quality, efficiency, reliability and safety of the Natural Gas and LPG. High standards are set by the Act for appropriate systems and practices to be put in place.

The Regulations provides a comprehensive set of preventive measures to ensure the safety of the gas pipelines, during installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, repair, upgrading and removal of the system. Provisions also exist to deal with foreseeable problems such as third party intrusions and tampering with the gas system.


Application of the Law

The gas legislation does not disregard the general obligations listed under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994, which is to provide a safe workplace and work system for all office buildings and construction worksites.

Likewise, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health continues to issue permits to install and operate gas facilities and infrastructure located within factory premises, in accordance with the provisions of the Factories and Machinery Act 1967.
