CE MARK for gas appliances

Gas appliances

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Access to the European Market for gas​ appliances

In order to sell in the European Economic Area, equipment that uses fuel gas, along with the safety, control and regulation devices, must comply with technical criteria established in Regulation EU 2016/426. The manufacturer of the products, or their authorised representatives, are responsible for ensuring that they have been designed and manufactured in accordance with the requirements established in Appendix I to said Regulation.

The manufacturer is also responsible for issuing the EU Declaration of Conformity and placing the CE Mark on the product. This ensures the free flow of products within the European Market. The commercialisation of certain appliances that use gaseous fuel, and their safety, control and regulation devices requires a notified body like AENOR to certify compliance with the mandatory safety requirements established in the regulation

AENOR is notified by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, and is accredited by the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) for this certification.

The new Regulation (EU) 2016/426 on appliances burning gaseous fuels fully came into force on 21st April, 2018, instantly repealing Directive 2009/142/EC.

For the manufacturer:

  • The CE mark grants unrestricted access to the European market, avoiding any technical barriers
  • The CE mark is also recognised by other global markets

For the consumer:

  • The CE mark ensures that the product is safe
  • The CE Mark guarantees certain common safety standards in Europe​

The conformity assessment procedures (Modules) are set out in Regulation EU 2016/426.

The applicable modules concern both the design phase (EC type examination, module B) and the production phase, which has various alternatives (modules C2, D, E, F and G).​

Production surveillance audits for modules based on quality assurance systems can be integrated into ISO 9001 quality management system audits.
