What is this standard about?

BS 6798 specifies the most recent requirements for gas fired boilers for central heating and other purposes.

Who is this standard for? 

  • Manufacturers of gas fired boilers
  • Service engineers
  • Regulators
  • Health and safety industry

Why should you use this standard? 

It gives recommendations and guidelines that relate to the selection of equipment and pre installation, the installation process and post installation maintenance of boilers that have a total rated heat input not exceeding 70 kW based on net calorific value. This includes cookers with integral boilers used to provide central heating.

It applies to boilers utilizing 1st, 2nd or 3rd family gases designed to operate in the condensing or non condensing mode for the heating of domestic dwellings or domestic dwellings in commercial premises by the circulation of heated water in open or closed systems. 

Note: BS 6798 does not apply to:

  1. Boilers with a rated input of over 70 kW
  2. Groups of boilers with individual ratings of 70 kW or less, but with aggregate inputs of over 70 kW as specified in BS 6644

What’s changed since the last update?

  • BS 6798 has been revised by technical experts in line with industry and technological developments
  • Updates are in line with the latest changes to Building Regulations relating to condensing boilers
  • There has been a change to installation methods relating to the siting of the condensate drain, to avoid freezing in cold weather
