You may need this authorisation if you intend to undertake specific gasfitting works outside the scope of a gasfitting licence or permit. This authorisation only applies if you have been employed by a specific employer or person who has contracted you to undertake the works. Specified gasfitting works include one off projects such as major gas installations and the maintenance of Type B appliances on industrial sites.
Gasfitting refers to any operation, work, or process in connection with the installation, removal, demolition, replacement, alteration, maintenance or repair of a gas installation (including the installation or conversion of a gas fuelled engine). Your authorisation will specify the class of gasfitting works you are authorised to undertake.
Your authorisation will also allow you to supervise the specified gasfitting work in certain circumstances.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
