Compliance - A Changing Landscape
About The Event
Gas Utilisation 2017

Now in its third year, Gas Utilisation is the IGEM conference dedicated to those working in the utilisation sector of the gas industry. This year’s event, entitled Compliance - A Changing Landscape, will focus on a number of changes that gas professionals need to be aware of in order to remain compliant.

We’ll be covering:

• The latest edition of the Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP) published by IGEM since it took ownership of the document in February 2017

• The introduction of practical training to ACS reassessment.

• Gas Safe Register’s new approach to inspection of gas work.

• The new Gas Appliances Regulation (EU) 2016/426 (GAR) for appliances burning gaseous fuels, that will replace the Gas Appliances Directive 2009/142/EC (GAD) as of 21 April 2018. In particular we’ll be exploring the impact of the new regulation on appliance manufacturers.

• Gas supply emergencies, consumer self-isolation and restoration (SI&R) of gas supply.

• Managing incidents of low pressure in the gas distribution network.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll also be providing an overview of the updates to IGEM utilisation standards IGEM/UP/1, IGEM/UP1A and IGEM/UP/10 covering strength testing and direct purging of gas pipework and the installation of flued appliances.

Plus we’ve invited Dr Peter Bonfield, key note speaker at Gas Utilisation 2016, to deliver an update on the Each Home Counts review that considers issues relating to consumer advice, protection, standards and enforcement in relation to home energy efficiency and renewable energy measures in the UK.

If you’re an engineer, appliance manufacturer or a health and safety or compliance manager then this conference is for you.
