The Gas Safe Register is the only official organisation for gas safety in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey.
Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010. What this means to you, is that anyone who carries out any gas related work in your property by law has to be on the Gas Safe Register. This ensures they are properly qualified to carry out the work in a safe and effective manner. It’s vital that you check your gas engineer is Gas Safe Registered, and is carrying the appropriate identification card with the Gas Safe logo.
