GAS Safe

GAS SafeHPSS Ltd are GAS Safe registered, Formerly CORGI

From 1st April 2009, The Gas Safe Register is the official stamp for Gas Safety in Great Britain.

The Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI gas registration throughout Great Britain, it is the official industry stamp for gas safety.

The Gas Safe Register deals with all aspects of the downstream gas industry covered by the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. It covers both piped natural gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG).

It is law that anyone carrying out gas work that is within the scope of the Regulations is on the Gas Safe Register from 1 April 2009.

The register is there to protect consumers from unsafe gas work. Our status as a registered engineer shows consumers we are competent and safe to work with gas.

Why has CORGI gas registration in Great Britain ended?

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) undertook a review of gas safety in 2006. This review concluded that there was a strong case for modernising the gas registration scheme to bring added benefits to gas consumers and gas engineers.

The review called for a clearer focus on gas safety and simple registration and competence requirements for gas engineers without compromising safety or service standards. It was an opportunity to build on the successes of the existing registration scheme and at the same time introduce innovation and add value to gas consumer safety.
