From 1 April 2022 you will need to be certified to install or maintain gas appliances or pipes. If you do not have a valid certificate as of 1 April 2022 you are no longer allowed to perform these activities. This is then considered an offence. This legal obligation is introduced to prevent accidents with carbon monoxide.
