Leading UK boiler parts supplier, Parts Center, will continue its initiative to sell safety-critical gas parts only to registered gas installers under the new Gas Safe Register scheme.
Until the end of March, gas installers wishing to buy safety-critical gas parts from Parts Center must be registered with Corgi and able to show a valid Corgi ID card.
But as of 1 April, when the gas registration scheme transfers to Capita’s Gas Safe Register, installers will then be required to show their Gas Safe Register ID card in order to buy these safety-critical gas parts from Parts Center.
“Parts Center is committed to gas safety and we want to do all we can to stop illegal gas workers,” said Parts Center brand marketing manager Julie McLean.
“We are also committed to supporting the new as registration scheme, the industry and individual registered gas fitters, who form the vast majority of our customers. With our safety-critical gas parts initiative, Parts Center is actively promoting safety for the end customer, while at the same time being right behind, the legitimate professional installer.”
The new Gas Safe Register scheme begins on 1 April, 2009. Gas installers must be registered with Gas Safe Register to work legally from 1 April. There will be no period of dual running with the CORGI scheme, and no grace period.
