Have your say on annual gas safety check flexibility

HSE wants to hear from you about how the GSIUR amendment that enables flexibility in the timing of landlords’ gas safety record checks is working for you.

The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) (Amendment) Regulations (2018) are being reviewed now and HSE wants to receive your feedback so that it can ensure that the regulations are meeting industry needs effectively.

It only takes about 10 minutes to provide feedback through this questionnaire and ensure your views are heard.

The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations (GSIUR) 1998 deal with the safe installation, maintenance and use of gas systems, including gas fittings, appliances and flues, mainly in domestic and commercial premises.

The 2018 Amendments came into force in April 2018. The main objective and intended effect of the amendments to Regulation 36(a) and 36(3) were to allow flexibility in the timing of landlords’ gas safety checks and prevent any unnecessary shortening of the annual gas safety check cycle.

This allowed landlords to carry out gas safety checks on their properties up to two calendar months before the expiry date of their current safety check but retain the original deadline date.

Your individual responses are for HSE’s internal use: they will not be provided to third parties and will not be used for regulatory inspection purposes. The data you provide will be securely stored and deleted upon publication of the final GSIUR 2018 post-implementation review (PIR). All data is processed in line with HSE’s privacy policy (https://www.hse.gov.uk/privacy.htm).
