Customer asked me to look at the flue on a wood burning stove/fires, the
flue pipe has become separated from the hole that goes up into the chimney.
Not getting involved, seems to me that a bodge could cause CO2
problems. Asphyxiating clients seems like bad business to me.
Are wood burning stoves/fires covered by CORGI/Gasafe regulations? Or is
there so different qualification she should be looking for?

Yep - HETAS are the CORGI of solid fuel :)
Google for HETAS and their website has a postcode search for registered
Just like with everything else, of course you can do your own work (building
notices as befits) but I understand Dave's reluctance, and it would be a
wise reluctance in this case (paid for work).
IME, unlike CORGI/GasSafe, HETAS guys do not have a reputation of charging a
fortune do anything - I would expect a not excessive charge to remedy the
problem, depending of ourse on how complicated it is!
