Accreditations – Gas Safe Engineers and much more…

We have a team of 3 Gas Safe Engineers (Registration No. 502969), who are committed to providing a safe service and protecting your property.

What is the Gas Safe Register?

Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the single gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010. It is the only official gas registration body, and by law, all gas businesses must be on the Gas Safe Register.

A Gas Safe engineer can only be associated with a registered business and be issued with a license to carry out gas work on behalf of that business if they hold a valid and current qualification. This license only relates to matters of gas safety and is obtained by each engineer through a recognised route of training and assessment.

A business is only given registration based on having at least one Gas Safe qualified engineer. The Gas Safe register is not a membership body or trade association.

What does the Gas Safe Register do?

The Gas Safe Register aims to protect the public from unsafe gas work and looks to achieve this through:

  • a national investigations team tracking down illegal gas workers
  • regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
  • educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
  • investigating reports of unsafe gas work

Our Gas Safe engineers all carry an official ID card, and you check our credentials on the Gas Safe register.

In addition to Gas Safe, we are also OFTEC accredited and Members of the APHC and FSB.
