Gas Safe Register

 

Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI and it is the official gas registration body of UK and maintains the list of operatives and businesses that are competent to undertake both liquefied petroleum gas and piped natural gas in the region (United Kingdom). For a gas engineer to legally carry out any work has to be gas safe registered. The Gas Safety Regulation 1998 has explained this in greater detail. This regulation consists of installation and use of any gas work undertaken.

All registered engineers from gas safe carry identity card which the clients can ask to see before they start any gas work carried out by the engineer in their house. At the front of the card there is a photo of the engineer, a registration number and the expiry date. The back of the identity card show the different categories of work that the engineer is qualified to undertake for example gas fires, boilers or any many more.

New businesses and engineers with no previous history or those returning to the industry who have a history of complaints or a record of unsafe gas work will be subject to a time limited probationary period. During that period they will be required to report all gas work they carry out so it can be inspected by a Gas Safe Register Inspector.

Landlords' Responsibility for Gas Safety

 

 

The landlord is legally responsible for the gas safety of the premises gas appliances. By law the landlord is required to:

  • Maintain and repair gas flues, pipe work and any other appliances in safe and secure manner
  • Undertake an yearly gas safety check on every appliance and flue by a competent person
  • An record of each annual check must be kept as a record

 

 

The tenants must be informed of their responsibilities while they are in tenancy your property and explain the safe use of the equipments must be provided to them

 

 

Ventilation and Flues are Important

 

 

To help operate safely, all gas appliances need the following:

  • An adequate supply of air to help the complete combustion of gas.
  • efficient operation of their flue to remove any combustion products, including carbon monoxide (CO), that are produced.

 

Without these safety precautions dangerous levels of carbon monoxide can build up with the possibility of fatal consequences. There are some easy ways to help avoid the build up of carbon monoxide poisoning:

 

  • never block ventilation;
  • ensure that flues are kept clear at all times;
  • Have your appliance regularly maintained and annually serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

 

 

 

Gas Appliance in a Bedroom

 

Since end of October 1998, any place of living (room) changed to use as sleeping accommodation should not have the below types of gas appliances:

  • Any gas heater or fire heater which includes a gas boiler over 14 kilowatts gross input unless the room is sealed.
  • Any gas heater or fire heater which includes a gas boiler over 14 kilowatts gross input unless the room in question is sealed or has an atmosphere-sensing appliance.

 

If a room contains any of the above gas heaters and was used as a bedroom before 1998 your landlord will need to do a complete risk assessment to decide if it is appropriate that the room is still used as a bedroom. If you want to find more gas safety advice you should contact CSI Ltd to arrange an appointment with one of our Gas Safe registered engineer.

 

  Homeowner Attention

 

Every year around 20 people die from gas-related carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Control system installation advises that gas appliances and/or flues are regularly checked for safety at least once every 12 months. With a Gas Safe registered engineer

Letting or Management Agent Property to Gas Safety

 

 

Landlords who use agents to manage properties need to ensure that the management contract clearly specifies who is responsible for carrying out the maintenance and safety check duties, and keeping associated records. If the contract specifies that the agent has responsibility then the same duties under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 that apply to a landlord apply to you.

In this situation an agent must arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer [4] for all Pipework, appliances and flues, which the landlord owns and provides for the tenants use. You must also arrange for an annual gas safety check to be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer. You must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in.

 

 

Duties as a Landlord in Relation to Gas Safety

 

 

As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 deal with landlords’ duties to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants are safe.

 You are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues, appliances and Pipework which you own and have provided for your tenants use by a Gas Safe registered [3] engineer. Although there is no prescribed timeframe for these duties, good practice would be the demonstration of regular, annual maintenance checks and subsequent repairs.

 

You are also responsible for ensuring an annual gas safety check  is carried out  within 12 months of the installation of a new appliance or flue which you provide and annually thereafter  by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. You must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in.
