Gas engineer holding up his Gas Safe Register ID card

Are you ready to renew your registration?

There are some simple steps you can take to make renewing your registration as straightforward as possible. It’s a good idea to get everything in place as soon as you can so that any potential issues can be resolved before your ID card runs out.

You’ll receive your invitation to renew eight weeks before your registration expires so don’t forget to renew before the expiry date. If you manage your account online, you’ll receive your invitation via email.

Make sure that all your details held by Gas Safe are up to date: once you’ve logged into your account, you’ll see the ‘Renew’ option under the Account Management menu. You then have two options:

Update registration details: Choose this option first if you need to make any changes to your registration, including adding and removing engineers.

Make payment to renew: If all your details are up to date, just enter the payment details and renew.

When your payment has been processed, Gas Safe Register will email you to confirm that your registration has been renewed, and you should receive your registration certificate and updated ID cards for you and any engineers you employ within the next 10-15 working days.

For those who are already set up to pay by direct debit, your registration will be renewed automatically and you’ll receive an email to confirm when payment will be taken.

If you don’t manage your account online, you can speak to the Customer Service team on 0800 408 5577 during opening hours. You can also use 24-hour telephone system. You’ll need your telephone PIN, which is included on your renewal invitation.

Valid qualifications?
You must have a valid core qualification – CCN1 or COCN1 – to renew your registration. Make sure all your qualifications are valid before you renew and that you have up-to-date qualifications for the categories of work you carry out.

Changing your trading title
If you’re going to change your trading title, you must request this with Gas Safe Register before you renew. The Register has to carry out additional checks, so please allow enough time for this to be completed before your renewal date.

This is so your ID card(s) and registration certificate will have your new company name, if the change can take place. Your business cannot trade under the new name until you receive confirmation of the change from Gas Safe Register.

It’s free to change your trading title, just go online to complete the request or email:

Don’t forget: If you don’t renew your registration before your renewal date and you wish to remain registered, you will have to re-apply for Gas Safe registration and you will lose your existing registration number.

You could save £22 with direct debit
You can set up a direct debit to renew your registration right up until your registration expiry date. When you set up a direct debit, you’ll be able to:
• Set up the direct debit to pay once a year or in interest-free monthly payments
• Save £22 if you choose the one-off payment option because you’ll pay the online fee
• Choose either the 1st or the 18th of the month to pay your direct debit
• Amend your direct debit instruction at any time.
It is covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee.

You may find it quicker and easier (and cheaper) to set up a direct debit using your online account rather than by phone.
