As you might know, it is mandatory for the GAR (Gas Appliance Regulation) that a product is state of art. This concerns appliances burning gaseous fuels used for cooking, heating, hot water production, refrigeration, lighting and washing. In order to be able to certify appliances, the manufacturer needs to demonstrate compliance with the state of art standard(s). This implies that appliances shall be in principal GAR certified based on the updated standards after the dow date.
