Type B devices

A Type B gas device is any gas device that is not a badged appliance gas device. This includes industrial gas plants and many commercial gas devices, and fuel gas systems for a vehicle or vessel.

All gas devices must be approved (certified) before installation or use by the Chief Inspector, Petroleum and Gas, or by a person or body approved by the Chief Inspector.

Where a Type B gas device is being supplied prior to approval, the supplier must provide a notice in the approved form to the new owner of the device advising of the approval requirements.
