Harmonisation of gas standardisation against the background of the GAR changeover
With the publication of the EU Gas Appliances Regulation (2016/426) (GAR) on 31 March 2016, a new regulatory framework was announced for major products that use gas. The new regulations came into force on 21 April 2018 and replaced the previously applicable EU Gas Appliance Directive (GAD).
All standards published within the scope of the GAD since around 2010 must now be revised.
