Carbon Monoxide poisoning has been well documented in the news. To ensure those responsible for the safe running of CO and CO2 detection devices, Logic Certification is now running new ACS assessment: Carbon Monoxide/Dioxide Atmosphere and Appliance Testing (CMDDA1).
Do you have landlords in your customer base? Are you a landlord yourself? Did you know that from October 1st landlords must have working carbon monoxide detectors fitted in any room with a solid fuel burning combustion appliances.
Laws relating to carbon monoxide detectors in private rented accommodation have been tightened up in Scotland.
As from 1st December 2015, Scottish landlords are required to install a CO detector in every space containing a fixed combustion appliance. In their Statutory Guidance the Scottish Government advise landlords that “combustion appliances such as boilers, fires, heaters and stoves fuelled by solid fuel, oil or gas all have the potential to cause CO poisoning if they are poorly installed or commissioned, inadequately maintained or incorrectly used.”
The heating industry, utility companies and the government have been urged to play a greater part in educating householders on the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO), as pressure increases to reduce the number of deaths and health problems caused by the deadly gas.
