The Department of the Environment has established a program for the inspection of boilers fired by non-renewable liquid or solid fuel of an effective rated output of 20 kW to 100kW. Such boilers will be inspected by H.M. Government of Gibraltar accredited independent experts a minimum of every two years. The inspector will provide advice to the users on the replacement of the boilers, other modifications to the heating system and on alternative solutions.
With regards to air conditioning systems, any such system with an effective rated output of 12kW or more will be subject to an inspection by a H.M. Government of Gibraltar accredited independent expert a minimum of every 5 years. The inspector will provide appropriate advice to users on possible improvement or replacement of the air-conditioning system and on alternative solutions.
The following guidance document, on the inspection of boilers and air-conditioning units, has been produced to aid in the understanding of the requirements which all building owners, managers and tenants must meet. Information on local requirements as well as the type of boilers and air-conditioning systems affected by these regulations, has been provided in the following pages.
