National Gas Training and Assessment Centre: COVID-19 Update
If your ACS gas qualifications have recently expired or are due to expire shortly, then you are probably (understandably!) concerned about whether you will be able to continue to carry out gas work.
No need to worry!
Latest advice from the Gas Safe Register states that HSE will permit registered gas engineers to remain on the Register for an additional period during the peak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) measures, provided that you maintain your Gas Safe registration and continue to work safely.
This is a temporary measure and does not remove the standing requirement for registered gas engineers to maintain their ACS certification and renew certification every 5 years.
So, what do I need to do next?
If you have been or will be affected, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise them of your situation so that they can update their records.
If you have recently renewed or are due to renew soon, your registration certificate will be posted to you as usual. However, if your qualifications have expired, a new card will not be issued until these are reinstated. Your customers will still be able to verify that you are registered by using the check a business search on the Gas Safe Register website.
You must renew your qualifications as soon as possible after the restrictions are lifted.
