I would think it does.

Check the manufaturers instructions it'll tell you what ventilation you need.

Well there you go then - that answers your question

"All flueless gas fires require a minimum room size and purpose provided ventilation of 100cm²."

as for the minimum room size read the manufacturers instructions.

"vw754" "All flueless gas fires feature a flame failure safety device and oxygen depletion safety device and must be installed by a CORGI registered installer."

and I'll repeat what I said on your previous thread just in case anyone missed it. I know quite a number of RGIs who WON'T touch these things with a bargepole because they think they are dangerous.

Just for information.
