    Connection: Part of the gas pipeline located between the distribution network and the connection valve (including this one). The connection is not part of the consumer installation.

    Stem Transition or connection element that eases transit from the buried section to the aerial section of the receiving installation, or vice versa.

    Shared receiving installation (CRI): A series of conduits and accessories between the supply valve (excluded) and the device connection valves (included), excluding the connections leading to the devices.

    Individual receiving installation (IRI): A series of conduits and accessories between, as appropriate: the user valve (in the case of a shared installation); or the supply or building valve (when supplying a single user).

    Certificate: Document issued by an authorised installation company necessary in case of modification. Modification is considered to be the receiving installation of the gas installation having a change of materials or layout in sections of length greater than 1 metre, as well as any expansion of consumption or replacement of appliances by other appliances of different characteristics. It must be given to the Inspector at the moment when the supply is reopened, with regard to RD919/2006 and Section 5 of ITC-ICG-07.

    Leak test: A check to ensure no leaks in the individual or shared installation. If, at the time of reopening the gas supply, the installation does not comply with Regulations or a leak is detected in the installation, the service cannot be restored.
