Is it compulsory to have a carbon monoxide detector?

Not as far as I know but they are a good thing to have for your own safety too.

Not sure about a carbon monoxide detector but on my ICP course we were told that you must have proof that you have your boiler serviced regularly, which has reminded me that I must get mine done!

here in Wales we have to have our boiler serviced annually
we do a carbon monoxide detector but don't think it compulsory

I have two, one by my boiler, another in the playroom where the kids sleep. Hubby got them from work - extra cautious. The inspector mentioned them, saying they were a good idea. They are not compulsory though.

We've got one too, but its just to be on the safe side, Lloyds chemists are doing them at half price at the moment (down here at least...)

We have them, have done for years.

It's not compulsory but since my mother in law nearly died this summer from a faulty gas boiler we've had one, it's not worth the risk.
