  • 2. Data sources
  • 2.1 The data used for the Gas Map on this Site is provided by Gas Safe Register and the Gas Distribution Networks.

  • Gas Safe Register, the official list of registered gas engineers, carries out a regular programme of gas safety inspections. The Gas Map on this Site is based on 539,866 inspections that took place from April 2010 to March 2023. It reveals where unsafe gas appliances have been identified.

    Additional data has also been provided by the Gas Distribution Networks; Wales and West Utilities, Northern Gas Networks, SGN, and Cadent. It reveals where unsafe gas appliances have been identified between 2012 and 2023.

    The rates of unsafe gas appliances for each region (e.g. Scotland, North West) and appliance type (i.e. gas cooker, boiler or fire) are based on site inspections carried out by Gas Safe Register between 1st April 2022 and 31st March 2023.

    Unsafe appliances include defects that were classified as "immediately dangerous" or "at risk" which relates to the Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedures classification of gas risks. An "immediately dangerous" installation is one which, if operated or left connected to a gas supply, is considered to be an immediate danger to life or property. An "at risk" installation is where one or more recognised faults are present which could constitute a danger to life or property without further faults developing.

    The information provided and used in the Gas Map is not exhaustive and is intended purely for illustrative purposes.
