From April the Corgi Gas Register was replaced by the Gas Safe Register. The Health and Safety Executive hold the brand “Gas Safe Register TM” in trust to ensure that it remains the official mark for the gas safety register.
“The Corgi Gas Register in Great Britain ended on 31st March 2009. There has been an extensive publicity campaign to make those people working in the trade aware of the change and to encourage them to re-register with the Gas Safe Register in order for them to comply with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 and be able to carry on work.”
The Health and Safety Executive has delegated to the Gas Safe Register the sole responsibility for collating and recording the registration details of all certified contractors who are registered to undertake gas work in Great Britain and the Isle of Man.
The Staveley Head spokesman went on to say “The majority of people working in the gas trade and holding commercial insurance policies will find that their commercial insurance companies will amend the policy wording in their documentation to accommodate this change either mid-term or at the latest when their renewal falls due. The policyholders do not need to do anything, other than advise their business insurance brokers if they have not yet registered for the Gas Safe Register.”
Staveley Head is one of the leading commercial business insurance brokers in the UK and will be pleased to give you all the advice and assistance you need regarding this matter, including a very competitive liability insurance quote.
