This technical report has been prepared under the aegis of the Sector Forum Gas Utilisation committee to provide guidance to CEN Technical Committees who are preparing European Standards for appliances burning combustible gases. It gives details of a general scheme for the classification of such appliances according to the method of evacuating the products of combustion. It must be stressed that this scheme only concerns appliances that are intended to be installed within buildings. It does not apply to outdoor appliances. This form of appliance classification is widely used in the preparation of European Standards for gas appliances to identify the requirements and methods of test that are applicable to the various methods of evacuating the products of combustion. Appliances classified in this way are generally described as "types" and this description has been retained for the purposes of this general scheme. The main purpose of the scheme is to promote harmonization in the classification of appliance types. This should ensure that there is a clear understanding of the various appliance types and will avoid confusion arising from Technical Committees describing them in different ways. CEN Technical committees are therefore requested to use this scheme in all circumstances in which it is appropriate. They should not deviate from it unless there are sound technical reasons for so doing.
