What is the directive?
The Appliances Burning Gaseous Fuels Directive (GAD 2009/142/EC) relates to appliances burning gaseous fuels (adopted in 1990) and contains essential requirements that must be met when placed in the European market. The Directive does not indicate how these requirements must be met, and so it gives flexibility to manufacturers as regards to technical solutions that can be adopted. Gas appliances and fittings that comply with the Regulations will be presumed to comply with the Gas Appliances Directive, and be entitled to free circulation throughout the European Union.
