Gas Safe

On 8 September 2008, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) awarded a new 10 year contract to Capita Group plc to provide a new registration scheme for gas installers. This will begin on 1 April 2009 and will, with immediate effect, replace the current CORGI system that is currently in place. These changes will be of significance to landlords and tenants.

What does this all mean?

Basically, Landlords were, by law, required to get a yearly Gas Safety Certificate and Gas repairs/maintenance by a CORGI registered gas engineer. From April 2009, Landlords should ensure that all current and future gas engineers are registered with Capita in order to meet their legal obligations- NOT CORGI!

I have a Gas Safety Certificate that doesnít expire until after April 2009

If this case, donít worry. The current certificate will remain legal until it expires. Once that happens, youíll be obligated to get a new safety certificate by a Capita registered gas engineer.
