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.
Landlords have legal responsibilities 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
If you are a tenant, always:
• Ask for a copy of the landlord’s current gas safety record before you move in and after any subsequent
safety checks have been carried out.
• Check the ID card of any gas engineer that comes to do work in your home. The engineer must be Gas
Safe registered – Trust the Triangle.
• Check the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing. You can find this information on the back
of the ID card.
• Cooperate with your landlord and let a registered engineer in when a gas safety check or servicing has
to be done.
• Arrange for any gas appliances you own to be regularly serviced and safety checked every year.
• If your landlord refuses to provide you with a landlord gas safety record you can report them to the
Health and Safety Executive.
Remember, if you think a gas appliance is faulty turn it off and let your landlord know immediately. Badly fitted
and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. If you
feel unwell seek medical help immediately.
