Commercial Gas Safety Certification
Commercial gas safety certificate
MHL can provide gas safety certification for commercial and industrial properties. With a team of over 100 gas safe registered engineers, we can provide same-day gas compliance, keeping your insurance valid and employees safe.
What is the cost of a commercial or industrial gas safety certificate?
The cost of a commercial gas safety certificate is generally around £200 for a single gas appliance. If you have multiple appliances the cost will increase. Industrial gas safety certificates are similar to commercial, however, depending on the KW output the inspector may require a specific gas registration. For this reason industrial gas safety certification can cost more than a commercial certificate.
How long is a commercial gas safety certificate valid for?
Commercial gas safety certificates are valid for 12 months. Records must also be kept on file for four years.
Gas safety for business
It is a legal requirement for commercial properties to have an annual gas safety check of commercial gas appliances. Once the inspection is complete and if the property successfully passes the inspection, we can provide your business with a commercial gas safety certificate.
There are different types of gas safety certificates for commercial premises. The most common types are:
- CP17 Gas safety certificate
- CP15 Plant room commissioning/serving record
- CP16 Gas testing and purging
- CP42 commercial catering gas safety certificate, for restaurants, hotels and any commercial businesses with a catering installation
CP42 Catering gas safety certificate
The CP42 gas safety certificate for commercial kitchens must be carried out by a commercial gas engineer who is qualified to work on commercial catering equipment.
The CP42 gas safety certificate service differs to the general commercial gas safety as it is designed for:
- Mobile catering trailers
- School kitchens
- Takeaways & fast food establishments
- Industrial cooking establishments
As part of the CP42 certification, a gas safety interlock system is also required. The interlock system features an emergency stop button which is situated at the kitchen exit. This health and safety requirement is connected with the kitchens extraction system and gas equipment, ensuring the gas supply stops when the extraction system is switched off.
In some properties such as schools, carbon dioxide monitors can be installed as part of the gas safety interlock system.
Which properties need a commercial gas safety check?
Any commercial or industrial premises, or commercial catering establishment with gas appliances, requires an annual gas safety inspection. This includes commercial landlords who rent properties to tenants. MHL can carry out commercial gas safety inspections and provide certificates for both natural gas and LPG sites. We can also advise on any necessary repairs or maintenance work required to successfully pass your gas safety inspection.
Our commercial gas safety inspector will check your commercial or industrial gas appliances, localised gas pipe work and flues. Making sure they are maintained in a safe condition in line with the gas safety (installation and use) regulations 1998. Once your property has passed the inspection, we will provide you with a digital gas safety certificate straight form site.
