The European Commission proposes to replace the gas appliances directive governing the safety of gas-fired appliances and related safety, regulating and controlling devices by directly applicable regulation.

This means that the 28 pieces of national legislation transposing the current directive will be replaced by one single piece of legislation, which will be available in all official languages of the EU.
