CORGI Replaced By Gas Safe Register

As of April 2009, the new Gas Safe Register replaces the CORGI gas installer scheme as Great Britain’s gas safety authority.

By law, from April, only Gas Safe Register engineers should be employed to carry out work on gas installations or appliances – CORGI gas registration will not be valid. Keeping the public safe is Gas Safe Register’s top priority. If someone other than a Gas Safe Register engineer carries out gas work at your home, you could be risking the safety of your family and your property.

Simple Gas Safe Verification

Checking that an engineer is Gas Safe Registered will be simple. From April, you will be able to check that an engineer is on the Gas Safe Register online at – or by calling 0800 408 5500.
