Gas installation defects explained

Defect categories 

Our gas engineers will use the guidelines laid down by the Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP) to identify defects in appliance and categorise them based on the following:

Immediately dangerous (ID) – An immediately dangerous installation is one which if left connected to the gas supply, is considered to be an immediate risk to life and property and needs to be rectified recently.

At Risk (AR) – At risk installation is where one or more faults have been detected and could pose a risk to life and property. This type of risk requires immediate attention and rectification.

Not to current standards (NCS) – This type of installation does not meet the current laid down standard, but is safe and can be used. However, it is always recommended that the installation is improved to meet the required standard.

Concern for safety – If the Gas Emergency Service provider has visited a property due to the smell of gas or fumes, a concern for safety notice will be issued to the resident. In this case that appliance must not be used until the owner or tenant gets a Gas Safe engineer to fix the issue.
