CP 42 is a certificate that proves that your business complies with the Gas Safety Regulations. It’s issued by a qualified engineer and is valid for one year. The CP 42 must be renewed every 12 months.
If you own or manage a commercial property, you’re responsible for the safety of any gas appliances and flues. This includes making sure they’re regularly serviced and maintained.
You must also have a valid Commercial Gas Safety Certificate (CP 42) to show that you’ve had the appliances and flues checked by a qualified engineer. The CP 42 is issued by a registered gas safe engineer and is valid for 12 months.
If you don’t have a valid CP 42, you could be breaking the law and putting people’s lives at risk. You could also be liable for expensive repair bills if something goes wrong.
So make sure you get your CP 42 certificate every year. It’s the law.
