Yes, you can. As long as:
- The electronic copy can be reproduced in hard copy format when required (e.g. for the tenant/HSE/housing department)
- The electronic copy is safe from damage and interference
- The electronic copy can uniquely identify the gas operative who carried out the safety check e.g. an electronic signature, a scanned signature, a payroll number unique to the operative, the name of the operative etc; the employer needs to have secure systems that link the individual operative to the unique identifier.
A landlord or gas engineer, with the landlord’s agreement, may send or give a copy of the electronic record directly to the tenant, providing the tenant is happy with this arrangement and has the ability to access it.
The gas safety check record is a record of the results of the checks carried out for the annual gas safety check. It should be issued on completion of the checks and not delayed even if defects are found or until necessary remedial action has been taken.
The record is a living document and landlords should supplement it with records of any follow up action taken (if required). This would provide a full record of the gas safety within the property.
You should not assume that an annual service inspection includes the points required by a safety check; neither should you assume that carrying out an annual gas safety check will be sufficient to provide effective maintenance. The advice of a competent Gas Safe registered engineer should be taken where necessary on action required.
