Gas Safe Register

Gas Safe Register Code.jpg

Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. It replaced CORGI.

LS Plumbing is committed to providing gas safety. Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning.

Protect yourself from the dangers by following these simple steps:

  • Only use a Gas Safe registered engineer to fit, fix or service your appliances
  • Get your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked every year
  • Fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm
  • Check for warning signs such as lazy yellow flames or black marks or stains around the appliance
  • Know the six main signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning - headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness


Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants. Landlords should make sure maintenance and annual safety checks on gas appliances are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

By law landlords must make sure:

  • Pipe-work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition
  • That all appliances and flues that they provide for tenants use have an annual safety check
  • That maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by and engineer registered with Gas Safe Register
  • All gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting
  • A gas safety record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in
  • They keep a copy of the gas safety record for two years

Landlords have responsibility for gas safety. All gas appliances provided by the landlord must be correctly maintained and a gas safety check must be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

If you are a tenant always:

  • Check the ID card of any gas engineer that comes to do work in your home. The engineer must be Gas Safe registered
  • Cooperate with your landlord and let a registered engineer in whenever a gas safety check or maintenance is required
  • Ask for a copy of the gas safety record before you move in or within 28 days of it being carried out

Remember, if you think a gas appliance is faulty turn it off and let your landlord know immediately. For more information and to find and check an engineer go to
