This assessment determined that there was clearly a strong case for updating the gas registration plan to bring added benefits to gas consumers as well as gas engineers. The evaluation called for a clearer focus on gas safety, and simple registration and competence prerequisites for gas engineers without having to compromise safety or service standards. It was a chance to build on the achievements of the existing registration scheme, and simultaneously introduce innovation and add value to gas consumer safety.
