THE GREAT GAS SWITCHOVER
In 2008 14 people died and many more were injured from carbon monoxide poisoning due to badly installed, repaired and maintained gas appliances. For over 27 years the CORGI registration scheme aimed to combat this truth, by protecting the public from rogue gas engineers.
Out of the need to provide an enhanced and more effective gas regulation service the Health and Safety Executive awarded Capita with a replacement contract. As of 1st April 2009, CORGI would be no more, wiping out the 93% public awareness that the incumbent scheme had achieved over the years.
Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI gas registration on April 1st 2009. It is the new watchdog for gas safety in Great Britain.
From day one, British homeowners would need to know the name of the new scheme, the accreditation mark they should look for when using a gas fitter, and most importantly trust the service provided by businesses registered under the scheme. The outcome of failing on any of these measures could prove fatal – getting this right was really a matter of life and death for the public.
