TB148 - Use of BS EN 14800 Hoses on cookers
Previously we have advised you (link can be found here
) about the new style of cookers hoses produced to BS EN 14800 that are available. BS 6172 (Specification for installation servicing and maintenance of domestic gas cooking appliances (2nd and 3rd family gases)) stated that hoses for cookers installed on 2nd family gas (Natural Gas) must be to BS669-1, with no such specification for 3rd family gas (LPG) installations.
TB148 has been released as an interim measure to allow for the installation of BS EN 14800 hoses on both 2nd and 3rd family gas installations. It is anticipated that a revised BS 6172 will be released within the next 12 months and will incorporate this amendment.
