Gas Safe Register - Why It's Important

Troy Stevens 10 November 2020

For anyone working within the Heating sector or involved in Gas Fitting/Heating Engineering, you will all have heard of the Gas Safe Register. But what is a Gas Safe Registered Engineer? And why is it important to be Gas Safe Registered? Let’s take a look.

What is the Gas Safe Register?

The Gas Safe Register is the official register of legally qualified gas engineers. Previously the Corgi registration, this list of heating engineers acts as a list showing gas engineers who are legally qualified to undertake work on gas appliances (boilers/kitchen stoves etc.).

You can visit the Gas Safe Register and access a list of it’s members here.

There are over 120,000 registered Gas Safe engineers in the UK, and all can be found via the register, and all have a unique 7-digit Gas Safe licence number as part of their Gas Safe ID card.

As well as providing a list of all UK registered fully qualified Gas and Heating Engineers, the Gas Safety Register undertakes inspections and regularly monitors Gas Safe businesses to ensure compliance of the Safety Register.
