Clarification of Note on UP/19 Flowchart

Gas

Technical Guidance Document #022

This document has been produced as a result of some confusion as to the interpretation of one of the notes in UP/19 on Figure 3 Flowchart dealing with risk assessment protocol when dealing with ‘existing’ gas fired installations in commercial catering establishments.

The flow chart requires air quality tests to be carried out in certain circumstances, however, it is often very difficult to carry out an air quality test in a busy kitchen and therefore it should only be required to do this where absolutely necessary.

Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP)

Gas

Technical Guidance Document #013

The GIUSP were revised in December 2015 (edition 7.1) and included a fundamental change in so much that the previous category of reportable unsafe situation “Not to Current Standards” was removed and therefore only two reportable categories remained, “At Risk” and “Immediately Dangerous”. This guidance document is intended to clarify what actions an engineer can take in various circumstances. It is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to the GIUSP.

Group Competency Scheme

Gas

Technical Guidance Document #009

Until recently the only way in which an engineer could be registered as competent was to undergo assessment at a certified training and assessment centre to acquire the required ACS accreditations and then to be reassessed every five years. This is a relatively expensive procedure costing anything up to £2000 per engineer in fees and other costs such as time off the road etc. every five years. As part of their remit to review many aspects of the registration process, Gas Safe Register consulted with industry and established that there was interest, particularly from large employers to establish their own, in house, procedures and assessments to ensure that engineers were competent. The result of this is that companies have the option to establish their own “Group Competence Scheme” (GCS) as an alternative to the “Accredited Certification Scheme” (ACS).

Gas Regulations

Gas

Technical Guidance Document #001

This document covers what the Gas Regulations say about maintenance.

The ceda Technical Steering Group has been concerned for some time about a lack of clarity in the gas regulations relating to regular maintenance of catering equipment and has therefore introduced a new initiative to help members understand the regulations and more importantly to help them explain them to their customers to both ensure a safe working environment and generate income for members.
