Hints & Tips

• Part B, 8 (1) of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 specifically states:

"No person shall make any alteration to any premises in which a gas fitting or gas storage vessel is fitted if that alteration would adversely affect the safety of the fitting or vessel in such a manner that, if the fitting or the vessel had been installed after the alteration, there would have been a contravention of, or a failure to comply with, these Regulations."

• This basically means that anyone who, whilst working at a property, affects the gas safety in any way (whether it concerns the pipework, ventilation provisions, flues etc.) could be deemed to be contravening the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 and thus find themselves having legal action carried out against them.
