Safety in the installation and use of gas systems and appliances

Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 Approved Code of Practice and guidance

This Approved Code of Practice and Guidance relates to the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. The Regulations deal with the safe installation, maintenance and use of gas systems, including gas fittings, appliances and flues mainly in domestic and commercial premises.

The Regulations affect a wide range of people, from those installing, servicing, maintaining or repairing gas appliances and other gas fittings, to suppliers and users of gas, including some landlords.

The HSE approved class of persons that gas engineering businesses are required to be a member of   changed from CORGI Gas Registration to the Gas Safe Register on 1 April 2009. This third edition has been produced to reflect this change and also updates references to appropriate standards, ACOPs, guidance and relevant information sources.
