CP12 - Gas safety certificate
A landlord’s gas safety certificate is commonly referred to as a CP12. This stands for CORGI Proforma 12, and comes from the time when CORGI was the UK’s statutory gas safety body – nowadays, it is the Gas Safe Register.

Periods between subsequent inspections will depend on the condition of the installation at the time of the preceding inspection, but it is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every five years or at the end of a tenancy, whichever comes first.
