The Gas Safe Register Sanctions Policy has been amended. Section 3.6 Application of a penalty fee has been updated and clarifies when a penalty fee will be applied for late renewal of registration.
Section 3.6 now states: A penalty fee will generally be applied in the following circumstances:
• Late renewal of registration due to late payment of the renewal fees, or
• Not holding valid certificates of gas safety competence at the time of renewal.
When renewing registration at the anniversary renewal date, the registered business will be allowed 30 working days (6 weeks) before a penalty fee is applied. Renewals of registration received outside 60 working days will not be accepted and a new application for registration will have to be made.
