Incorrect gas work can be harmful and dangerous. Improperly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and also carbon monoxide gas poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can put lives at risk as well as costing you a great deal to have it corrected.
It is shocking that there are over a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs performed each year. In the event that your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are illegal as well as the work they have completed. If your gas engineer is qualified and registered to do gas work in your home then they will definitely be in a position to present you their Gas Safe ID card.
Be aware that not all gas engineers are certified to work on all forms of gas appliances. The back of their ID card tells you if they are actually certified in order to work on the specific type of gas work you need. As an example, if they install a gas fire but are only Gas Safe registered for pipework and boilers then they and their work are illegal.
Another factor to appreciate is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered corporation during the course of the week and they are completing work for you outside of this as a private job then this is illegal if they are not personally registered with the Gas Safety Register.
It is actually against the law for any individual to do work on gas equipment within the UK, 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 United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey, who are appointed by the applicable 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 to carry out gas work (much as the DVLA issues driving licences to individuals who have proven their proficiency by successfully passing a driving test). The checks a Gas Safe Register make prior to permitting enrollment only extend to making certain that those making an application for registration is appropriately qualified as gas safety proficient.
Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers, nor a trade association.
The 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.
In the event that you need to have gas work carried out in your business or place of work, you can make use of a variety 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 Register.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of businesses that are legally given permission to accomplish gas work. Every registered organisation who employs gas engineers is issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to carry out all types of gas work so always remember to check their ID card prior to any work is executed or use a specialist, dependable and reputable facilities company, such as BPS, who will ensure the appropriate and appropriately qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your commercial property.
If you believe someone is working on gas unlawfully, you must 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 ad hoc basis to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work performed in the last 6 months, you can nominate it for a free gas safety inspection.

It’s effectively a method of advising the Local Authority of the new appliance, and you ought to receive it in the post within 28 days of a new appliance being put in.

Gas Safety Records
The documentation an engineer leaves behind after having installed, serviced or safety checked a system is dependent upon the purpose and type of work carried out. The only documents required by legislation is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail exactly what checks the engineer has performed and if the appliances checked is safe so as to meet the appropriate safety standards.
What is the Purpose of the Gas Safety Register?
The Gas Safety Register aims to safeguard the general public from hazardous gas work, and they aim to achieve this through:
- a nationwide investigations team tracking down illegal gas workers.
- regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers.
- educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety.

Why is a Commercial Gas Engineer different from a Domestic Gas Engineer?

A Domestic Gas Engineer will have the knowledge of repairing, maintaining and installing gas appliances that are designed for use in domestic properties as well as gas pipework up to 35mm in diameter in domestic buildings.
