Gas Safe Register
The Health & Safety Executive has announced changes to the gas installer registration scheme & whilst aimed primarily at the domestic sector will apply to commercial gas installations as well.
We have all become use to looking for a Corgi Registered company, but now things are changing.
As of 1st April 2009, a new “Gas Safe Register” will come into place; the scheme is going to be operated by an independent company “Capita” and will be the ONLY gas installer scheme that is approved by the Health & Safety Executive.
What you need to do is check that the installation company you are using is going to be registered with the new scheme, always ask for a “gas safe” registered engineer and check that any supplier you use are intending to transfer to the new scheme.
