CRU – Postpone Compulsory Registration for Commercial Gas Installers.

Tue Dec 11 2018

Commission for Regulation of Utilities

Mandatory registration for commercial gas installers was due to commence from January 2019 and the CRU would like to thank you for your assistance on this project.

Following engagement with, and feedback from, across the industry, the CRU has decided to postpone compulsory registration for commercial (non-domestic) gas installers. This is to allow more time to ensure the introduction of this important regulatory change is as smooth as possible.

This postponement delays the requirement for commercial gas works to be only carried out by a Registered Gas Installer (RGI). We apologise if this causes any inconvenience: as soon as possible we will provide information on when the new regulations will apply.

Please note, the delay to registration in the commercial gas sector will not affect domestic gas installers. All residential gas works should continue to be by an RGI only.

The CRU will update you again shortly to update and advise on new timelines for the regulation of commercial gas works. In the meantime, we would appreciate your help in getting this message out to your organisations members and colleagues.
