Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey. All gas engineers must be registered with the Gas Safe Register by law.
When registered, an engineer will be licensed by the Gas Safe Register, so they can perform gas engineering work lawfully. Without registering, any gas engineering work is unlawful.
The Gas Safe Register has replaced the previous CORGI registration for gas engineers.
The Gas Safe Register also investigates any unsafe or illegal gas work that they have reported to them, along with campaigning for awareness of the risks of unsafe or illegal gas work being conducted. Following an investigation of unsafe/illegal gas work, the information is given to the Health and Safety Executive, who has the ability to prosecute, when required.
By having a registered engineer to conduct your work within your home, there are a number of key benefits:

To find a qualified engineer on MyJobQuote, first you must post the job for the work that you want completed, by completing the to ‘Post Your Job’ form on MyJobQuote.
As part of the process of posting the job, you must include appropriate and relevant details about the work or the problems occurring – for possible engineers to understand the work involved.
After the job is posted, local gas engineers can review the details you have provided. Up to 3 gas engineers could contact you to discuss the work and provide a quotation. From any of the engineers who contact you, it will be your choice of which engineer to hire. Each engineer will have their own tradesperson profile on MyJobQuote with their provided details (such as their qualifications) – to aid your decision making.
All gas engineers have been manually verified as Gas Safe registered when they sign up as a tradeperson. Until they are confirmed as Gas Safe registered they will not be able to undertake any gas engineering jobs via MyJobQuote.
Beyond this every gas engineer’s registration status is checked every 6 months onwards after signing up, to ensure they are still registered as Gas Safe registered.
Even with our checks, you should always check an engineer is registered with Gas Safe before hiring them – so please do check via the Gas Safe Register to ensure they are registered. This is also the best course of action if there are any sub-contractors or additional staff with the engineer, as in some cases, a registered engineer may have a non-registered sub-contractor for assistance – which should also be reported for having a non-registered engineer conducting gas work.
Before applying, an engineer must have appropriate applications and has been evidenced to an awarding body. Further details are available on the Gas Safe Register site
