The Gas Appeals Board was established under the Gas Safety Act 1997. Its primary purpose was to provide an avenue of review for certain decisions of the Office of Gas Safety (VA 4209). The Board was a statutory authority and heard appeals of decisions made by the Office of Gas Safety.
In 2002, the Government passed the Energy Legislation (Further Miscellaneous Amendments) Act 2002 (No. 24/2002). This Act abolished the Gas Appeals Board and transferred its functions and powers to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VA 4146).
