There is a new ‘advice’ check for solid fuel appliances; 8.10.5 This is a new ‘advice’ check for, unintended gaps or cracks in the outside surface or seams of a solid fuel stove; or, unintended gaps greater than 2mm in the loading door seal or door glass; or, loose, damaged or missing cover plates. Compared with LPG, burning solid fuel can produce up to 100 x the amount of carbon monoxide and this deadly toxic gas can escape from gaps and cracks in the stove body that are not part of the design or manufacture.


15 existing checks are amended to introduce an enhanced technical requirement; i. 2.1.1 Fuel Filling Point - The check has been enhanced to address the potential for overflowing fuel entering the interior of the vessel through fuel filling points in poor condition. The previous version was limited to seeing that the location of fuel filling points would not allow overflowing fuel to enter the vessel interior. ii. 2.2.2 Petrol Tank Fuel Filler Connections - This check has been enhanced to require the petrol tank filler connections to enter the tank at the top of the tank. The 2013 version now addresses the potential for petrol fuel and vapour escape from filler connections on the side of petrol tanks. iii. 2.3.3 Fuel Tank Vent Hose Connections - This check has been enhanced to require vent hose connections to be accessible for inspection. – The requirements now specify that the condition should not only be good, but that there should be access to check the condition of vent hose connections. iv. 2.8.1 Fuel Tank Drain Stoppers - This check has been enhanced to disallow the use of wooden bungs to terminate a fuel tank drain facility. The new version now closes loopholes for ineffective types of fuel tank drain stops. v. 2.10.1 Diesel Pump Fuel Lines -This check has been enhanced to require high-pressure diesel fuel lines between injection pumps and injectors to be constructed of metallic pipe and not to be made of hose material. vi. And 2.10.3 Diesel Pump Fuel Lines - This check has been enhanced to ensure examiners check the condition of high-pressure diesel fuel pipes between injection pumps and injectors. These two related checks now address a potential risk of failure of high-pressure diesel fuel lines.
