Gas Cooker Regulations

It is important to know when having a gas cooker fitted that there are specific gas cooker regulations that need to be followed cautiously. Following these gas cooker regulations help to ensure your gas appliance and home is as safe as possible after having an installation. The reason for reading about gas cooker regulations is to get a better understanding and knowledge of what is acceptable and what is unacceptable when having a gas cooker installed in your home.

Gas cooker regulations are put in place to ensure the safety of you, your family, your home and your appliance. The gas cooker regulations are a basic set of rules put in place to make sure the law is not broken.

Gas cooker regulations can include:

–          Only a Gas Safe engineer must install your gas cooker.

–          All freestanding cookers with a high level grill require a minimum of 610mm clearance above the grill.

–          A minimum of 20mm is required either side of the appliance.

–          Due to new gas cooker fitting regulations any appliance installed must contain a Flame Supervision Device. The device detects if the flame is extinguished and cuts off the gas supply. This affects flats and multi-dwelling buildings which include dual purpose properties i.e. flats above shops. It does not include detached, semi-detached or terraced houses.
