Carbon Monoxide Alarms -  new regulations coming

In November 2021 parliament passed further changes that will come into effect in 2022 regarding Carbon Monoxide Alarms

The key changes will be :

  • carbon monoxide alarms will be mandatory in rooms with a fixed combustion appliance (excluding gas cookers) in private rented homes.
  • carbon monoxide alarms will also be mandatory upon installation of any heating appliance (excluding gas cookers) in all tenures through building regulations
  • landlords will be expected to repair or replace alarms once informed that they are faulty


As soon as parliamentary time allows, the UK Government will amend the Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015.

Compliance is of key importance to Frosts, and be assured we are working in the background auditing all properties and will shortly be in touch if we discover your property requires any additional alarms to be installed.
