Gas Safety Certificate (CP12) explained

  • Also known in the trade as a CP12, a Gas Safety Certificate is a report which outlines the appliances tested in an annual gas safety check.
  • A legal requirement in the UK, all landlords and owners of commercial premises need to have their gas appliances regularly serviced to make sure they are working efficiently and safely.
  • Gas Safety Certificates are valid for a period of 12 months and must be renewed.
  • What does an annual gas safety check involve?
  • Once a year you will need to arrange for a Gas Safe registered engineer to visit your property or commercial premises. They will carry out an inspection to ensure your gas fittings and appliances are safe to use.
  • With your permission they will:
  • Check that appliances are well ventilated and that there is a constant supply of fresh air enabling the gas to burn properly
  • Confirm that all safety devices are working effectively
  • Inspect the flue or chimney to make sure all fumes leave the property via the appropriate means
  • Declare an appliance unsafe if they find any faults
