Extension of Registered Gas Installer Scheme to include Non-Domestic Gas Works

The CRU regulates installers who carry out domestic gas work through the Registered Gas Installer (RGI) scheme.

It is planned to regulate the safety of Non-Domestic Gas Works through the development of a new category on the Registered Gas Installer scheme. Once the legislation is in place, this means that only gas installers registered in the appropriate category on the RGI scheme will be legally entitled to carry out Non-Domestic Gas Works.

The new rules bringing the non-domestic gas sector into line with the domestic sector were due to come into effect from January 2021. The CRU has taken the decision to postpone Non-Domestic Gas Works regulation until 2023.

The new start date of 2023 has been chosen as it coincides with developments and processes that will be in place for the new designation term for the Gas Safety Supervisory Body, the role currently carried out by RGII.

This information note updates the earlier note from 2016 and provides context for the decision to postpone implementation of Non-Domestic Gas Works regulation until 2023.
