In Great Britan, on April 1st 2009, the Gas Safe Register™ replaced CORGI gas registration CORGI was set up in 1970 as the as the 'Confederation for the Registration of Gas Installers'. CORGI was set up in 1970 in response to the 1968 'Ronan Point' accident, when a gas explosion caused the partial collapse of a new tower block, resulting in 4 deaths and numerous injuries. This accident was caused by a faulty gas installation, and it was from this that CORGI was created.Initially, gas installers only needed to become CORGI registered on a voluntary basis. However, in 1991, the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) asked CORGI to maintain a register of competent gas installers in the UK. As a result, CORGI now stands for 'Council for Registered Gas Installers'.On April 1st 2009, the Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI. The register is designed to protect you, your family and your property from dangerous and unsafe gas works. By law, anyone carrying out work on gas installations and appliances MUST be on the Gas Safe Register.
