LCC27 - New LPG Cylinder and Appliance Connection - Transition

Further to our previous updates regarding the new LPG Cylinder and Appliance Connection, we have received more detailed information regarding the connection references and transitional period.

We confirm the Gas Technical Regulators Committee (GTRC) have issued a Technical Guidance Bulletin (TGB), Bulletin Number 14 to assist with clarifying these issues.  

In summary:

* The Type 27 connection is referred to as the Leisure Cylinder Connection (LCC27)

* The change from the Type 21 (POL) connection to the LCC27 is limited to small portable LPG cylinders with a capacity not exceeding 25 litre water capacity (nominally 10kg).

* The LCC27 cylinder connection is cross compatible with both Type 21 (POL) and LCC27 appliance connections.

* The LCC27 appliance connection is only compatible with LCC27 cylinders.

* The transitional dates are summarised below and refer specifically to the manufactured date of either the cylinder valve connection or appliance connection:
