Gas Safety Installation Certificate - Everything Your Need To Know

The Gas Safety Installation Certificate is a document that you can use to prove that the gas installation and the appliances that are connected to it in your home have been checked, tested and sealed by a competent person. Plus, it ensures that you're up-to-date with all of the latest safety standards.


What Is The Gas Safety Installation Certificate?

Gas Safety Installation Certificate (GSI) is an internationally recognised certification for the installation and inspection of gas appliances. The GSI is a voluntary scheme administered by the British Standards Institute (BSI). In order to be certified, the installer must meet certain standards, including a thorough knowledge of gas safety and the ability to carry out safe installations. 


What Are The Benefits Of A Gas Safety Installation Certificate?

Gas safety installation certificates are an important part of ensuring your home is safe from the dangers of a gas leak. They offer a number of benefits, including: 

  • Reduced risk of a gas leak. A gas safety installation certificate guarantees that your home has been properly installed and maintained to ensure a safe and reliable supply of natural gas. 
  • Protection from potential injuries. A gas safety installation certificate can help protect you and your family from potential injuries caused by a gas leak. For example, if there is a gas leak in the kitchen, the certificate may stipulate that the kitchen must be separated from other areas of the house by a safe barrier such as a wall or floor. 
  • Reduced insurance costs. A Gas Safety Installation Certificate can help reduce your insurance premiums because it demonstrates that your home has been properly installed and maintained to minimize the risk of a gas leak.

Types Of Gas Safety Installation Certificates

There are a number of different types of gas safety installation certificates that can be issued in the UK. Some of these certificates are issued when a new gas installation is completed, while others may be required when an existing gas installation is updated or replaced. 

The most common type of certificate required for new gas installations is the Health and Safety at Work (HASW) certificate. This certificate is required if the installation will be carrying out activities that could cause exposure to harmful chemicals or explosives. If the new gas installation will only be used for heating, a Heat Treatment Plant (HTP) certificate may be sufficient. However, if the installation will also be used for manufacturing, a Gas Installation Certificate (GIC) may be required. GICs are usually issued when a new gas installation is used to supply gas to a commercial premises. The most common type of certificate required for an existing gas installation is the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) certificate. This certificate is usually required when any alterations or updates are made to the gas system. Other types of certificates that may be required include: 

  • A Technical Certificate if modifications are made to the piping or equipment used to deliver gas to consumers 
  • A Fire Protection Certificate if alterations are made to the building in which the gas system is located 
  • A Gas Leakage Detection and Repair Certificate if any repairs is carried out on the property.

Why Should You Get A Gas Safety Installation Certificate?

If you’re thinking of installing a gas safety installation certificate (GSI) in your home, it may be worth your while to think again – according to a recent survey by Gas Safe Register, just one in four people believe that getting a GSI is necessary. The findings suggest that the majority of people (63%) would not feel safe if their home did not have a current GSI.The good news is that there are plenty of good reasons to get a GSI. 

A GSI is a legal requirement for any new installation of gas appliances, including central heating systems and fireplaces. It confirms that the work has been carried out by an experienced, qualified installer and can help to protect you and your family in the event of an accident.

A GSI is also beneficial if you are planning to sell your home. Having one can help to reassure potential buyers that the property is safe for them to live in. Moreover, it can help to attract buyers who are looking for properties that have been well looked after – something that a GSI can definitely help with!


What Are The Costs Associated With The Gas Safety Installation Certificate?

The cost of the Gas Safety Installation Certificate in the UK can vary depending on the size and complexity of the installation. A standard Gas Safety Installation Certificate costs £75-£150, and is valid for one year. The fee includes a consultation, verification of compliance with legal requirements, and a certificate of completion.

However, when obtaining it for a business venture, the cost of obtaining a Gas Safety Installation Certificate in the UK varies depending on the size of the business and the type of installation. The costs for a small company may be less than £1,000, while a large company may pay up to £10,000. There are also fees associated with submitting an application for a GSIC and attending an inspection.
