Gas Safe Register
Gas Safe Register
Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. It replaced CORGI. The Gas Safe Register makes sure the engineers on the Register are safe by inspecting the gas work they have carried out.
As Gas Safe registered engineers you can feel safe in the knowledge that we are competent and qualified to work safely and legally with gas. By using a Gas Safe registered engineer you are protecting yourself and your family from incorrectly fitted, fixed and serviced gas appliances. These are a major cause of lethal carbon monoxide poisoning, and can also lead to gas leaks, fires and explosions.
Always ask for a Gas Safe Register ID card. To check my registration details visit or call 0800 408 5500. Take care, be Gas Safe.
Are you a landlord?
Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants. Landlords should make sure maintenance and annual safety checks on gas appliances are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
By law landlords must make sure:
pipe-work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition
that all appliances and flues that they provide for tenants use have an annual safety check
that maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by an engineer registered with Gas Safe Register
all gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting
a gas safety record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in
they keep a copy of the gas safety record for two years
Before any gas work is carried out always check the engineers ID card and make sure the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing. Encourage your tenants to do the same.
