What is a tracked changes standard?

A tracked changes version of a Standard indicates the changes made, during the standards revision process, between the active standard and its previous version. Additions, deletions, and other formatting and/or content revisions are clearly displayed as underlined and strikethrough texts, ensuring all changes made between the two documents are quickly and easily identified. This version of the standard includes both a copy of the new standard, along with a track changes version.

What is this standard about?

This standard is the first in a three-part series on handling liquid fuels. This part gives best practice recommendations on dealing with space heating and hot water supply installations in people’s homes.

Who is this standard for?

  • Designers
  • Specifiers
  • Installers
  • Service and commissioning engineers
  • Building owners and plant manager using or intending to use liquid fuels/oil fired equipment
  • Health and safety, and building inspectors

Why should you use this standard?

It gives recommendations and guidance on the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of liquid fuel burning installations for space heating and hot water supply purposes in domestic buildings.

It also gives recommendations and guidance on the selection and installation of liquid fuel storage tanks of capacity up to 3,500 litres, when installed at domestic buildings.

The standard also applies to liquid fuel fired cookers where these are connected to flues and to installations burning liquid fuel conforming to BS 2869, including biofuels conforming to BS EN 14214 and blends thereof.

NOTE: This part of BS 5410 doesn’t apply to liquid fuel fired systems for marine and transportable installations, or for flueless heaters (e.g. gel fires covered by BS EN 16647or stand-alone paraffin heaters).

What’s changed since the last update?

This standard is a full revision of the 2014 edition. The title and structure have been changed to align the standard with the recently revisions to Parts 2 and 3. It also introduces the following principle changes:

  • Condensing boilers are now included
  • Boilers burning biofuels are now covered
