From 1st April 2005 CORGI introduced it's 'Complete Safety Initiative'
A new scheme whereby the installation of any new or replacement heat producing gas appliance in a residential
dwelling must be notified to CORGI making your home a safer place and making it more difficult for bogus gas engineers to
Research showed that faulty gas appliances are responsible for a number of deaths and injuries that occur
in the home.
In order to reduce this risk Gas Work Notification has been introduced to increase safety standards.
When a new or replacement installation has taken place, the CORGI engineer must notify CORGI that the work
has been carried out and CORGI will issue the homeowner with a 'declaration of safety' or 'Building Regulations compliance
certificate' confirming that the work has been carried out by a competent CORGI registered installer and that the installer
meets the requirements of the relevant Gas and/or Building Regulations.
Only CORGI registered installers are able to inform CORGI and thus enable the certificate to be issued.
This certificate will form part of the Home Information Pack which, from January 2007, will be required
when selling a home.
