This British Standard specifies the installation (see Note 1) and maintenance of domestic gas cooking appliances in domestic, commercial and industrial premises (see Note 2 and Note 3), including educational establishments (see Note 4).

It is applicable to gas cooking appliances conforming to BS 5386-3 and BS 5386-4 and burning 2nd and 3rd family gases, and appliances conforming to BS EN 30-1.

It is not applicable to cookers with integral boilers used to provide central heating, which are covered in BS 6798.

It is recognised that this standard might be referred to for the installation of gas cooking appliances conforming to standards other than BS 5386-3, BS 5386-4 and BS EN 30-1. However, other criteria might also apply, such as surface temperatures, temperature rise of surroundings, appliance stability, etc., and these have to be taken into account in the method of installation.

NOTE 1 For the purposes of this standard, installation includes design, inspection and commissioning. It is recognised that each of these tasks can at times be performed by the same persons.

NOTE 2 As well as normally constructed dwellings, domestic premises include any permanently sited leisure accommodation vehicles, residential park homes and permanently moored boats. Particular and additional requirements exist for these categories of premises and can be found in IGE/UP/8 [12]. Neither this standard nor IGE/UP/8 [12] applies to gas installations in towed or motorised caravans.

NOTE 3 Where domestic cooking appliances are installed in commercial or industrial premises in conjunction with catering appliances, reference should be made to BS 6173, particularly with regard to ventilation and extraction.

NOTE 4 Additional information on installations in educational establishments is given in IGE/UP/11 [13].
