This Technical Report gives recommendations to ensure the quality and safety of domestic gas installations. This Technical Report covers pipe work, appliances installation, their combustion air supply and flue products exhaust commissioning, inspection and maintenance activities carried out by operatives.

This document addresses the following three main factors, which have an influence on gas safety in general:

  1. quality and safety of components of gas installations and gas appliances,

  2. quality of the work when gas installations are constructed and commissioned,

  3. inspection and maintenance of installations and gas appliances.

Potential ways in which individual competence of operatives and/or businesses can be ensured and mutually recognized between Member States are considered.
