The Gas Safety Regulations of 1988 states that landlords must obtain gas certificates to guarantee the safety of tenants in residential and commercial buildings in the UK. Therefore, as a property owner in Cardiff, you must order an annual gas safety inspection to get a valid gas certificate from a licensed engineer.
The Welsh National Statistics Bureau reported that in 2019 – 2020, 38% of all primary fires in the country were in residential buildings. Moreover, the statistics revealed that Cardiff had the second-highest number of fires in Wales. These numbers highlight the importance of gas safety certificates in Cardiff, especially in domestic properties.

If the gas safe engineer considers an appliance to be unsafe for use, they may mark it with either one of the following two warning labels:
If the appliance is identified as ID, the gas safe engineer will disconnect the device with your permission and suggest that you have it serviced or replaced. As the name implies, appliances marked ID can cause fatal damage; therefore, tenants cannot use them until they are repaired.
On the other hand, appliances marked At Risk (AR) will not be disconnected, but you will be advised to bring them up to standard as soon as possible. In some cases, appliances labelled AR continue to be dangerous even after the gas supply has been shut off. In this instance, the gas safe engineer will issue a warning notice and refer you to the relevant service for maintenance.
A gas safety check cost in Cardiff is around £80 on average. You will most likely be charged £10 per appliance if you have more than one boiler, gas hob, or fireplace. It is much more affordable to get a gas safety inspection every year instead of paying damages from CO poisoning, explosions, and fires.
