Registered Gas Installers of Ireland

Registered Gas Engineers

A Registered Gas Engineer or Installer (RGI) is one who has completed the mandatory gas installation safety training requirements and supplies the RGI

with the insurance needed to undertake gas installations to the necessary industry standard. Gas installations should only ever be undertaken by a Registered Gas Installer or Gas Engineer. Since June 2009 all engineers/installers have had to register with the RGI to be able to legally carry out installations, repairs, servicing and maintenance.

All RGI engineers carry an official gas safety qualification, they all have public liability insurance for the work they do and they are all trained in the Irish Installation Standards. When ever you are considering having any gas works carried out in your home, you should always ensure that the gas installer you choose is  RGI and carries a valid RGI number to prove it.

It is unlawful for anyone not registered as an RGI to carry out any domestic natural gas installations.You will regularly see advertising campaigns from the Registered Gas Installers of Ireland run on TV, radio and mail shots to promote safety awareness about all aspects of gas installations and to highlight the importance of using a Registered Gas Installer.
