BS 6173:2009 Specification for installation and maintenance of gas-fired catering appliances for use in all types of catering establishments (2nd and 3rd family gases)

BS 6173 is a key standard for all gas installers.

BS 6173 specifies requirements for the installation, servicing and maintenance of new and previously-used gas-fired catering appliances used in catering establishments, burning 2nd or 3rd family gases.

The main changes to the standard include updates to installation practice and legislation.

BS 6173 does not apply to LPG catering installations where appliances are sited temporarily in the open air, marquees or tents, or to LPG installations in mobile catering vehicles.

BS 6173 does apply to the installation of typical domestic cookers or leisure appliances such as barbecues when installed in commercial catering sites or establishments. It is not intended to apply to primarily domestic premises, e.g. those supplying a small number of clients on a “bed and breakfast” basis. However, the general rules for hygiene and personal safety should be applied. It covers a wide range of appliances, such as cookers, fish and chip frying ranges, fryers, ovens, café boilers and urns, bain-marie units, tandoori ovens, kebab grills and barbecues.

BS 6173:2009 replaces BS 6173:2001, which is now withdrawn.
