IRI reconnection: without certificate, with certificate(1), following debt settlement(2)
Operation for connecting your individual installation. To do so, the engineer will conduct a leak test on your installation, check that your boiler or heater is burning correctly and check that any other irregularity leading to the disconnection of the installation has been rectified. If unusual or incorrect meter operation is also detected, this may also be replaced.
IRC reconnection without certificate
Operation for connecting all supply points on entirely or partially disconnected shared installations. In this operation, the engineer will check the seal on the installation, regardless of whether it is a communal or personal installation. In homes where the client is absent, they will leave them a notice with all the necessary information to rearrange the supply.
This implies rescission of the contract and steps to ensure the safe status of the individual installation. The engineer will remove the meter and leave the installation in a safe condition.
For this operation, the engineer will replace the meter with another similar meter and conduct a leak test on the installation.
Disconnection at the request of the marketing company
An operation to cut-off the gas supply due to an outstanding debt with the marketing company. To do so, the engineer will cut-off, block and seal the installation until the customer settles the debt.

Property or IRC data verification
An operation aimed at confirming various data associated with a property, structure, street, number or meter battery organisation.
