Certification and testing services for Gas and Electrical products

When safety matters most choose the BSI Kitemark for gas and electrical products

It’s never been more important to make sure gas and electrical products are safe and compliant. There are increasingly stringent regulations requiring products to be more energy efficient, a need to make products as safe as possible, and an ever changing regulatory landscape. If you are looking for independent third party certification we can work with you to help make your products safe, reliable and compliant.

Our comprehensive range of gas and electrical testing services includes BSI Kitemark certification and testing to support CE marking. We have an international reputation for technical expertise, quality services, and an in depth knowledge of gas and electrical testing spanning over 30 years. Our dedicated centre of excellence in Loughborough, UK, is where our test engineers are based and where testing is carried out. We work with key industry bodies such as IGEM (Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers) to promote awareness of gas safety, uphold safety standards and protect people from dangers such as carbon monoxide poisoning.

For manufacturers of gas and electrical products

We test and certify a wide range of gas and electrical products including:

  • Domestic and commercial cooking appliances
  • Gas water heating products
  • Gas fires and space heaters
  • Leisure and camping gas appliances including barbeques
  • Controls and ancillary appliances

Whether you need market access, you’re bringing new products to market, or if you want to differentiate your products to gain market share we can work with you. Our range of services includes:

  • Verification certificates (to demonstrate the result of a one-off test to a publically available specification)
  • Testing to support CE marking (we are a Notified Body for 17 EU Directives including the Gas Appliance Directive, Boiler Efficiency Directive, EMC Directive and Low Voltage Directive)
  • Full BSI Kitemark certification which is unique to BSI and one of the most recognized and robust quality marks around

We can also test products to many international standards or specifications, so we can help manufacturers gain access to many different markets around the world. This could help you to save time and money by working with BSI to help you access multiple markets. If there is a particular standard or specification for which you require a testing service, please complete a general enquiry form as we may be able to help.

For installers of gas and electrical products and those responsible for property management

If you are responsible for installing gas appliances in the UK you will need to be registered with the Gas Safe Register. Choosing to install a product with a BSI Kitemark can give Gas Safe registered engineers peace of mind that you are working with products that have been robustly tested on a regular basis to perform and to be safe to the latest standards. Each year BSI supports National Gas Safety Week.

If you are a landlord of high rise or low rise buildings with shared flues we can help you to meet your legal responsibility with our UKAS accredited Shared Flue inspection service known as Flue Scan. This comprehensive inspection service of your properties will help you to prove your duty of care and give you peace of mind.

For specifiers, and procurement professionals

The BSI Kitemark is widely recognized by procurement professionals, and those responsible for major infrastructure projects. Our product directory could help you to identify acceptable products for tenders and validation. It allows you to search for approved BSI Kitemark products with their model numbers and descriptions and it makes it easier to identify products and services with the Kitemark.
