This Approved Code of Practice and guidance gives practical advice on the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations (GSIUR). It is for anyone who may have a duty under the regulations, including those who install, service, maintain or repair gas appliances and other gas fittings.

Every year about 14 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by gas appliances and flues which have not been properly installed or maintained. Many others also suffer ill health. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 as amended specifically deal with the installation, maintenance and use of gas appliances, fittings and flues in domestic and certain commercial premises.

The changes included are to:
  • Introduce a degree of flexibility to the timing of landlords' annual gas safety checks. This MOT-style change means that landlords can carry out the annual gas safety check in the two months before the due date and retain the existing expiry date. This avoids landlords waiting until the last minute and not gaining access, or having to shorten the annual cycle check to comply with the law. There is no change to the legal requirement for an annual gas safety check or for maintenance to be carried out
  • Incorporate an existing exemption into law to carry out alternative checks in situations where there is no meter to directly measure the heat input and it is not possible to measure the operating pressure, and extend the scope slightly to include situations where the meter is not accessible or the meter display is not working
  • Disapply most of the requirements of GSIUR for installations fed by a dedicated gas supply, which are primarily used to supply compressed natural gas (CNG) to vehicles and which incorporate at least one gas compressor with an electric motor input power rating exceeding 5 kilowatts, bringing them in line with other industrial premises. Other more appropriate regulations already apply to these premises
