Garage owner in court for pressure system contravention

City of London magistrates punished the director of Scuff Plus Limited, a garage in Edgware, after he ignored a requirement to have his compressor examined. In 2009 Richard Grant was unable to produce evidence of an examination, in line with a Written Scheme of Examination, when an inspector visited and an Improvement Notice was served later that year.

In 2010 Grant undertook not to use the pressure vessel until it had been examined by a competent person but carried on using the equipment. The director pleaded guilty to breaching the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 and was given 12 months’ conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £500.
