Attention Liveaboard crafts and Houseboats

Did you know that carrying out work on the gas system of boats used primarily for residential or domestic purposes falls within the scope of UK legislation known as the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations (GSIUR)? As such, the law demands that anyone contracted to ‘work’ on the LPG system of a boat in scope must be (LPG boats-competent) Gas Safe registered. If your boat is your primary residence, i.e. you live on it, your Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) examiner must be (LPG boats-competent) Gas Safe registered. We’re aware that there are currently long wait times for this ‘type’ of BSS examiner, so even if yours isn’t due until the new year it’s worth getting it booked! More information can be found on the BSS website.
