Do I need a Commercial GAS Safety Certification?

It's very straightforward. If you possess a commercial property which has gas appliances, it is a criminal offence for you not to have an annual Gas Safety Certificate which is valid. We give these to you anytime we finish a gas boiler service, so this is the best way one can get them.

How to Get a Gas Safety Certificate

Reach out to us with a list of your gas-powered heaters of boilers, and we will give you a quote within 24 hours. You can get your gas safety certificate in a few days. Our phone number can be seen at the top of the page.

What are The Regulations?

Around thirty individuals die each year in the United Kingdom as a result of badly maintained or poorly installed gas appliances and flues, which results in carbon monoxide poisoning, and is deadly. The Gas Safety (Use and Installation) Regulations 1998 imposed duties on people who make use of gas systems to make sure that they are suitable and safe for use. You can find full details at the Web page of the Government Gas Safety Regulations.

These duties would also include you being responsible for the inspecting and servicing of all in-service gas boilers, heaters, fires,  and all other types of gas burning appliance or equipment. Either you are a landlord or a tenant, self-employed or employers, this applies to you if you're responsible for gas appliances.

A separate or your contractual lease agreement can assist you in setting out practical arrangements to make sure that you meet the gas safety requirements. Nevertheless, the major legal responsibility is with the ones who occupy the workplace concerned. Any individual in control of the building, or the owner, would also possess duties in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 - just like making sure there is safe maintenance of the heating equipment in common parts. The separate or contractual lease agreement can be used in determining the way these responsibilities are allocated.

No matter the size of the appliance, location or type of the systems and appliances, it is necessary to make sure that they are at least serviced every year, or even more often according to the manufacturer's specifications.

What if I do Not Have a Gas Safety Certificate?

According to what we feel, it's just not worth the risks which come with not possessing a Gas Safety Certificate. It is not only about the fines, loss of supply, or penalty; it is the risks to life as a result of faulty equipment and most likely imprisonment if you are found guilty.

Huge penalties for noncompliance will most likely be imposed, and deaths may result in manslaughter charges for agents and landlords. If you do not comply, it is a criminal offence, and unlimited custodial sentences and fines can be imposed by the court

Your property insurance may also be invaded and could most likely result in claims for civil damages - awards in these instances have been proven to be extremely high indeed.

How Much Will A Gas Safety Certificate Cost?

This varies according to the number and type of gas appliances you have. The best and most cost-effective time to get a gas certificate is part of your annual maintenance.

What Does A Gas Safety Certificate Involve?

Individuals can only be issued Gas Safety Certificates by GasSafe registered engineers. At Emergency Plumber London, our Gas Safety certified engineers can help out with this process to ensure you are safe from possible dangers.

They'll be required to go to your premises and do a series of tests on every gas appliance, which also includes a visual inspection, pressure, functionality, and operation tests. Every appliance which makes use of an extraction system to get rid of combustion gases will also go through inspection to assess if the method of extraction is suitable or not. Appliances which are being tested will be required to be isolated for a short amount of time till the completion of certain tests.

I have just installed a new gas appliance,  do I require a certificate?

As soon as your appliance has been serviced by our GasSafe registered engineers, they'll most times leave you with a report that explains what checks they require. This report will likely be issued as a gas safety record; it can sometimes be referred to as a gas safety certificate which is dependent on the job you've told them to do.

It is not always a legal requirement for your engineer to provide you with this type of details, but most GasSafe registered engineers will give it or similar.

The gas safety info tells you that the gas fitting or gas appliance has been checked to know if it's working safely and meets the right safety standards. This info could also tell you the time you need to service your appliance next.

I'm a Landlord; What're My Responsibilities?

If in your lease, the responsibility for gas appliances are retained by the landlord, the tenant must be given a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate the moment he/she enters and within 28 days of a yearly check. The landlord must also retain a copy for two years.

According to the law, there must be a regular service of all gas appliances by the landlord, normally once in a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This engineer will give you a gas safety record as soon as he/she has completed the check. 

What Info Does the Gas Safety Record Have?

At least, the gas safety check record must contain:

  • Date when the appliance or/and flue was checked
  • Any defect noticed, and any action is taken or done to fix it
  • Name, signature, and registration number of the engineer that carried out the check
  • Confirmation of the outcome of operational safety checks done on the gas
  • The address and name of the landlord (or maybe his agent where appropriate)
  • The address of the property that the appliance or/and flue was installed

Running frequent checks on your gas appliances is very necessary, which is why Emergency Plumber London is well equipped with Gas Safe registered engineers to ease you of this process.
