What is a gas boiler certificate?

A gas boiler certificate is a document issued by a registered gas installer (an RGI), to the person who instructed the work to be carried out. This document certifies that the work has been carried out to a minimum standard of safety by the RGI. An RGI can only legally certify their own work.

Both the customer, and the RGII will receive a copy of the gas boiler certificate as proof, and for future reference.

Why is a gas boiler certificate important?

Gas heating is generally very safe, clean and economical. When properly maintained, and with carbon monoxide alarms installed, there will rarely ever be anything to worry about. However, gas boilers can be lethal pieces of equipment when they are tinkered with by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

It is illegal to work on somebody else’s gas boiler if you are not a registered gas installer. The ramifications of poorly carried out gas work can be devastating. Explosions, gas leaks and carbon monoxide leaks all pose a huge threat to your health and your home.

A gas boiler certificate is your assurance that a job has been carried out properly and has been properly logged. If anything were to go wrong, that certificate can trace the job back to who carried it out. If you are a homeowner, you should keep your gas boiler certificate in a safe place.

If you’re renting, your landlord should have copies of these, but you can ask for a copy too when any gas work is carried out in your home.
