The whole gas certificate thing here in Australia is a mess.

A friend of mine bought a new boat with a gas certificate from Western Australia and had to have the system re-installed by a Queensland tradesman before they would transfer the registration to Queensland. It is probably one of those make work things that they are so good at here.

It is quiet possible that the certificate is accepted as valid by NSW authorities and if so will probably not be much safer if redone to Queensland requirements. If this is the case and you bought the boat in NSW I don't think you have any comeback against anyone.

Since we don't have any marine stove manufacturers left in Australia I don't know where you would find one specifically built to Australian standards. If the one you have was built by a reputable overseas manufacturer I would ask them what certifications of compliance it originally came with and really argue it with the surveyors and installers and demand they identify which manufacturers stoves comply.

How do you solve it, I think the advice above is good and you just need to seek out a reasonable cost tradesman to do the work, it should be less than $1,000 if you can avoid replacing the stove.

They all are built to Australian standards if they are sold in Australia and will have an Australian standards sticker on them.
