HELP STAMP OUT ROGUE GAS FITTERS!
The Gas Safe Register is working to stamp out dangerous gas
fitters without the necessary qualifications to install or repair boilers and
other gas appliances.
Most gas users will be familiar with CORGI, the industry body that regulated workers

Anyone on the Gas Safe Register should be able to provide identification with an individual
card showing their photo, their Gas Safe Registration number and the Gas Safe logo.
