Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend regulation 2 of the Gas (Authorisation Application) Regulations 1986, which prescribes the manner in which an application for an authorisation to supply gas under section 7 (authorisation of public gas suppliers) or 8 (authorisation of other persons) of the Gas Act 1986 is to be made.

The amendments alter the requirements imposed on applicants for authorisation under section 8 of the Gas Act to supply gas which consists wholly or mainly of propane or butane. Such applicants are relieved of the obligation to provide a description of the proposed supply including specified particulars, and the obligation to provide any business accounts. They are made subject to a new obligation to specify the name and qualifications of any person engaged to install or inspect the facilities for providing the supply.

The Secretary of State to whom applications for authorisation under section 7 of the Gas Act should be addressed is currently the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and his principal office is at Ashdown House, 123 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6RB.

The principal office of the Director General of Gas Supply, to whom applications for authorisation under section 8 of the Act should be addressed is at Stockley House,130 Wilton Road, London SW1V 1LQ.
