Gas and electrical safety in private housing

Introduction

Gas safety

All gas appliances in the property should be tested annually by a gas safe engineer. It is important to carry out these checks and obtain a gas safety certificate.

Find a gas safe engineer (gassaferegister.co.uk).

Electrical safety

An electrical inspection should be carried out every five years by a qualified electrician who should check the electrical installation and all electrical appliances and supply an electrical certificate of compliance.

Find a registered electrician (electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk).
