The following information is a summary of the requirements of the Directive.
 It is not an area in which we currently offer advice but you may find some useful information and links here.

Summary

This directive applies to a range of gas burning appliances that operate up to a normal temperature of 105 °C and some fittings including safety, regulating and controlling devices and sub-assemblies. The directive became mandatory from the start of 1996, therefore all gas appliances sold that fall within the scope of the directive must be CE marked. However, there are exclusions from the directive including products for industrial use on industrial premises. The directive defines as gas a fuel which is in a gaseous state at 15 °C at a pressure of 1 bar, therefore excluded appliances that run on natural gas and LPG amongst others. When secondhand products are sold, they are only required to comply with the essential safety requirements of the directive. Manufacturers of new products must meet protection requirements which are checked through type testing, compile a technical file, mark the product with a CE logo and implement production quality control.

This directive requires type testing and production quality to be tested and approved by an Independent body notified as competent by the European Commission. To satisfy the requirements for production quality control, manufacturers must adopt 1 of 5 different procedures that must be checked by a notified body. These procedures differ in proportion of products checked, how these are selected and whether the products themselves are checked or the production method if this can guarantee production quality control.
