Do you need a qualified mobile catering engineer to test, repair or provide a gas safety certificate for your mobile catering vehicle?
Did you know that it’s a legal requirement for all mobile caterers to have their gas equipment checked, and certified, annually in most cases (or bi-annually for some high-risk installations) to ensure the equipment is safe to operate? These checks must be carried out by an engineer with the appropriate mobile catering qualifications, in addition to, or instead of domestic appliance qualifications).

It’s a legal requirement to have all equipment installed/inspected by a Gas Safe Engineer. All catering equipment has a CE mark.
