nearly legal highlights a county court case and comments -

It may be that this is going to the court of appeal, and that the CoA will find differently, or it may be that the Prescribed Information Regulations will be amended by MHCLG. But for now, any landlord who did not provide the gas safety certificate at the start of a post 1 October 2015 tenancy, before the tenant moved in, is likely to find that they cannot serve a section 21 notice, at least during the period of that tenancy.
