As you may be aware, Gas Safe Register is facilitating a review into the competence requirements for registration. The review will be conducted over the next 12 months with a final report submitted to the HSE in autumn 2011.
Their role in the review is to bring together the viewpoints and experiences of all those with an interest in the topic and to ensure that all parties have an opportunity to contribute.Gas Safe Register will deliver an evidence-based report to the HSE on the current competence regime. Conclusions from the report may be developed and implemented for the improvement of gas safety for the purposes of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. The review will focus solely on gas competence in relation to registration requirements and its impact on the delivery of safe gas work and consumer gas safety.
