The Dutch Ministry has issued a communique relating to the requirements for gas appliances and their labelling and changes due to the Decree of 6th May 2016.

This Decree of last year required all appliances to be capable of burning G+ and H gas and be labelled accordingly by 1st January 2017.

In the interests of leniency and to allow manufacturers time to make the necessary developments and retesting of their appliances, and in order to allow consumers to still have access to a wide range of appliances, some parts of this Decree have been temporarily waived until 1st January 2018. This document will be published in the official journal (of the Netherlands), to become formal law.
