Why should you work with a Commercial Gas Engineer?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will be experienced in working on, repairing, maintaining and installing larger gas appliances, heating and cooling system and pipework and this means they are going to possess the specialist knowledge needed to maintain and repair these larger systems.
What qualifications should a Commercial Gas Engineer have?
A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will certainly have an industry qualification, for example, Gas Installation and Maintenance or Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma and be Gas Safe registered. Some qualified gas engineers become qualified from working through an apprenticeship and still obtain the very same qualifications as the end of it.
Why is it necessary to choose a qualified Commercial Gas Engineer?
Dangerous and incorrect gas work can be deadly. Badly fitted and also poorly serviced appliances can lead to gas leakages, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide gas poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can possibly put lives at risk in addition to costing you a great deal to have it addressed or remedied.
It really is astounding that there more than a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs conducted annually. If your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are operating illegally. If your gas engineer is certified and registered to execute gas work in your home then they will be able to show you their Gas Safe ID card.
Be aware that not all gas engineers are certified to work on all varieties of gas appliances. The back of their ID card discloses you if they are actually qualified to work on the specific type of gas work you need. As an example, if they install a gas fire but they are solely Gas Safe registered for pipework and central heating boilers then they and their work are literally illegal.
An additional point to bear in mind is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered service provider during the course of the week and they are conducting work for you outside of this as a private job then this is likewise illegal if they are not individually registered with the Gas Safety register.
It is actually against the law for anybody to do work on gas equipment in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Guernsey unless they are Gas Safe registered.
What is the Gas Safe Register?
The Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body for the UK, Isle of Man and Guernsey and is appointed by the appropriate Health and Safety Authority for each area. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register, and the Register’s role is to serve as a licensing body.
When a business becomes Gas Safe registered they are being issued a licence in order to carry out gas work (much as the DVLA issues driving licences to individuals that have demonstrated their proficiency by passing a driving test). As a result, the checks Gas Safe Register make before permitting enrollment only extend to ensuring that those making an application is appropriately qualified as gas safety proficient.
Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers, nor a trade association.
Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and in Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010.
If you require gas work carried out in your business or work environment, you can use a wide range of search options to locate a registered business or check an engineer is registered and qualified for the work you need doing on the Gas Safe website.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of organisations that are legally permitted to accomplish gas work. Each and every registered business who employs gas engineers are issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to carry out all varieties of gas work so remember to inspect their ID card well before any work is executed or make use of an expert, trustworthy and reputable facilities company, like CMS, who will only ensure the correct and appropriately qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your business.
If you believe a person is working on gas illegally, you really should report them to the Gas Safe Register who will then investigate.
There are more than 120,000 engineers on the Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Register inspects the work they’ve conducted on an impromptu basis so as to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work done in the last six months, you can nominate it for an absolutely free gas safety inspection.
What is the purpose of the Gas Safety Register?
The Gas Safe Register investigates reports of illegal gas work. The information they gather is passed on to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), who have the power to prosecute.
The Gas Safe Register conducts public awareness campaigns to ensure gas consumers aware of the risks of harmful and illegal gas work, and of other dangers such as carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. It is the coordinating body for the annual industry-wide Gas Safety Week campaign.
The Gas Safety Register aims to safeguard the public from harmful gas work, and they seek to achieve this via:
- a nationwide investigations team uncovering unlawful gas workers
- frequent inspections of Gas Safe registered engineer
- educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
- investigating reports of hazardous gas work.
The Gas Safe Register is run by Capita Gas Registration and Ancillary Services Limited, a division of Capita Plc

It’s effectively a way of updating the Local Authority of the new apparatus, and you ought to receive it in the post within 28 days of a new appliance being put in.
If you require a duplicate Building Regulations Compliance Certificate you can do this on the internet or call on 0800 408 5500 and select option 6. There is a cost for duplicate certificates.
What is a Gas Safety Record?
The documentation an engineer leaves immediately after having installed, serviced or safety checked a system depends on the purpose and type of work executed. The only documentation required by legislation is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail precisely what checks the engineer has performed and if the appliances checked so as to meet the appropriate safety standards.
