The Council for Registered Gas Installers
The Council for Registered Gas Installers (CORGI) still exists, but it is now a voluntary register. It was the sole register for gas engineers until 2009 in Great Britain and the Isle of Mann and 2010 in Northern Ireland and Guernsey. It was replaced by the Gas Safe Register as the official gas registration body.
Do I need to register on Gas Safe?
