Gas Works in your Home
You must use a Registered Gas Installer to carry out gas works in your home. It is the law.
Why use a Registered Gas Installer
You must use a Registered Gas Installer (RGI) to carry out any gas work in your home. This law applies to both natural gas or LPG gas.
By using an RGI you'll know that:
- you are dealing with a trained installer
- your gas installation is safe
- your RGI has insurance
All RGIs must provide their customers with a Declaration of Conformance Certificate. This is also known as a Completion Certificate. It shows that the completed works are safe and up to standard.
To find an RGI visit the RGI scheme's website.
Our role in regulating gas installers
The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) regulates all domestic gas installers. We do so through the Registered Gas Installer (RGI) scheme.
By law, all domestic gas workers must list themselves with the RGI scheme. The Gas Safety Supervisory Body, appointed by the CRU, maintains the RGI scheme. The RGI svheme makes sure that all RGIs operate to national safety standards.
