What is the Gas Safe Register? 

The Gas Safe register is the only official gas registration body of gas businesses and engineers throughout the UK. If you are a gas business or engineer, you must be on the Gas Safe Register by law. 

Essentially, businesses and engineers on the Gas Safe Register are safe for use and trustworthy. Customers of Gas Safe registered engineers can be reassured that they comply with the legal requirements and regulations for gas work. 


What is a Gas Safe Registered Engineer?

A Gas Safe registered engineer is one that is aligned to a Gas Safe business and has been issued with a license to undertake gas work on behalf of the registered business - if they hold valid and current qualifications. You can also join the Gas Safe Register if you're a self-employed gas engineer. 

For a gas engineer to be legally classed as Gas Safe registered, they must hold their CCN1 qualification and their  ACS certification.
