What is the Gas Safe Register?

Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI gas registration in Northern Ireland on 1st April 2010. It is the new official hallmark for gas safety in the United Kingdom and Isle of Man.

Gas Safe Register LogoWhat is the Gas Safe Register?

Gas Safe Register manages the register of gas engineers who are properly qualified to work with gas in Northern Ireland. Gas engineers must be on the register to carry out work on gas installations and appliances safely and legally.

Gas Safe Register will protect you from dangerous gas work. You can ensure that gas appliances such as boilers, fires and cookers are installed, maintained and serviced safely by using a registered engineer.

Poorly maintained, badly installed or faulty gas appliances could put you at risk from gas leaks, fire, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas which you can't see, taste or smell, but it can kill quickly with no warning.

If someone other than a Gas Safe registered engineer does the work in your home, you could be risking people's lives.
