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. The Register also provides investigations into complaints against the safety of registered businesses to ensure compliance and safety. The Gas Safety Register strives to ensure that all businesses that are Gas Safety Registered are operating in a compliant and safe manner.
