Certification for Commercial Gas and Solid-Fuel Cooking Appliances

Being fresh off our recent visit to Vegas for the Pizza Expo, we found our team discussing the certification process for commercial gas and solid-fuel cooking appliances. Often misinterpreted, the term “fuel-burning appliances” encompasses a wide variety of products that burn substances, including gas (natural gas, blended gas, butane), oil, and solid fuel (wood, coal). Manufacturers of these appliances must have their products certified against the applicable standards for the market(s) that they wish to enter.

Our team is here to assist you with testing and certification, ensuring your products adhere to critical standards such as CSA/CGA, ANSI, EN, BS EN, AS/NZ, and more. Our ultimate goal is to see your gas or solid fuel appliances surpass safety, quality, and reliability benchmarks for market approval or launch. Adherence to national standards broadens your market reach and builds trust with consumers.

Compliance Standards for Gas Appliances

Knowing the ins and outs of CSA/CGA Standards is crucial for the safety and performance of commercial gas and solid-fuel cooking appliances. These regulations for gas appliances offer many benefits, instill confidence in the product, and broaden its market scope.

The CSA/CGA standards ensure that all fuel-burning appliances meet the applicable standards’ requirements. These standards guide everything, from how an appliance is built and what materials are used to how its performance is measured and tested. These standards help protect the people who use these appliances and play an important role in decreasing the risk of accidents.
