Flues Running Through Voids or Ducting
LESS THAN 72 DAYS TO ENSURE YOU COMPLY WITH NEW REGULATIONS.
If you have a flue that runs through the fabric of your property or in ducting or boxing then you have less than 3 months to comply with regulations.
Access Panels are required to be installed so the flue can be checked along its entirety to ensure its integrity.
The homeowner (or landlord etc.) has until 31st December 2012 to arrange for inspection hatches to be installed.
Any gas engineer working on affected systems after 1st January 2013 will advise the homeowner that the system is “at risk” (AR) in accordance with the GIUSP and, with the owner’s permission will turn off the gas supply to the boiler so it cannot be used.
