Who must obtain a gas safety certificate (CP12)?

Owners in the United Kingdom with gas appliances and accessories, including central heating, boilers, and flues, must perform an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe engineer. If you are unsure whether the Gas Safety Regulations Act (1998) applies to you, you can find it on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) government website.

However, if you are the landlords, these laws most likely apply to you. You must keep the security verification for two years and provide new tenants with a copy of the certificate before they move and within 28 days of completing a new verification.

Which gas appliances must be checked?

Your legal obligations as a landlord include every gas appliance that you own and ensure the use of the tenants of your property. If the tenant supplies his own gas appliances, you are responsible for the installation parts and pipes, but not for the appliance itself.

Refer to Rule 36 (3) of the HSE Approved Code of Practice regarding the obligations of owners with regard to security controls for full guidance.

What about the service and maintenance?

HSE regulations make a distinction between gas safety controls and related service and maintenance activities that may need to be performed. As the owner, you have the responsibility to ensure that all appliances (especially boilers), as well as smoke pipes and ducts, always work safely.

We recommend that maintenance be performed every 12 months to ensure correct operation of the devices.

Refer to Rule 36 (2) of the HSE Approved Code of Practice regarding the obligations of owners with regard to the maintenance of pipes, flue ducts and equipment for full guidance.

Is it good to have only one digital record of my gas safety certificate (CP12)?

Yes! It is perfectly acceptable to keep track of your gas inspection electronically and many owners find it much more convenient. When you can produce a hard copy when needed (such as when new tenants move), you keep it safe (that is, it is not removed from your electronic records) and you uniquely identify the engineer (for example with a signature) ), It is absolutely fine to have only one electronic copy. If you share an electronic copy with your tenants, ensure that they first have the means to access it.
