Apply for a new gas work licence or authorisation

You need a licence or authorisation before you do any gas work in Queensland, regardless of whether the work is residential, commercial or industrial.

Gas work means any work involved in installing, removing, altering, repairing, servicing, testing and certifying the gas system of a gas device.

To obtain a gas work licence or authorisation, you'll need to show that you have the required qualifications and experience.

In deciding whether to grant your application, we will consider your suitability, for example whether you have been convicted of an indictable offence or an offence against Queensland's petroleum and gas safety legislation. We will also take into account any disability or medical condition that might put you or the public at risk.

This guide explains the different types of licences and authorisations and how to apply for them.

Do you have a current interstate or New Zealand gas work licence? You may be able to apply for recognition of your licence. If you already have a Queensland licence, read about renewing your licence or authorisation.
