    I see where you're coming from but the requirements for commissioning and compliance certificate are much more in-depth than a landlord cert. Obviously it wouldn't be practical to do a full recommission every year, but we take on trust that the commisioning engineer did it right, so we are doing mare "maintenance" checks.

    Can t see the problem with it as long as its checked over properly whats the difference between that and doing a service.when you service a boiler you dont know if its been installed correctly until you look at it yourself.

    it's a definite no no. When you service you don't scrutinise every single part of the installation for example is the gas pipe installed to standard where it disappears into the floor. I would assume there is nobody here that will go pulling up floorboards just to check the gas pipe run for example? Why not? Because you have to make a certain degree of assumption that the person who installed it knew what they were doing. If you are signing off someone else's work then you have no confirmation that everything has been installed to standard unless you demolish it and start again in which case what's the point

    As above 102%. As Riley says. And guess if anything were to go wrong with a new installation Doing that it just means trouble. For me. I always make sure I'm on track. As to communicating I might have missed out on something myself, but at least i know I'll have piece of mind to have the task properly answered. As to being gas safe registered. It's not the "end of"! To me it's always a new beginning and keeping updated on a basis.
    As to servicing, had a few bad starts here and only made me think again I'm learning here.
    But a deffo no when or if it comes to that. I'd rather not be considered.
    At the least is having to check and doing a let by tightness test with tiny untraceable leakage.
    OR working with ALL appliances and not having enough due for undersized pipework.

    I knew someone would come straight back with an argument like that. Showing once again that the public are not informed by the body ie Gas Safe

    You can`t see the problem and I can`t see your gsr badge! Neither can I see the point in coming back to something from 2015 unless it concerns you directly.
