W4 Gas Safety Certificates

Gas Safe Registration has now superseded CORGI as the required qualification for any individual who wants to work with gas supplies and products in the UK. In order to be able to award W4 Gas Safety Certificates we make sure all of our technicians at PGS are Gas Safe registered.

Landlords must make sure their properties with a gas supply are assessed by a Gas Safe plumber once every 12 months, to meet their legal responsibilities. PGS can supply a Gas Safe registered plumber to complete the required assessments and provide W4 Gas Safety Certificates to landlords and rental agents.

The punishment for not having official W4 Gas Safety Certificates can range from fines to a criminal conviction depending on the consequences. As a landlord you are responsible for the safety of your tenant and if the tenant is in any way injured as a result of an unsafe appliance, you are responsible in the eyes of the law and could therefore face prosecution.

In order to qualify for W4 Gas Safety Certificates, rental accommodation must undergo a range of tests, including those for leaks, installation faults, aeration issues, evidence of misuse and flue efficiency. All these essential tests can be completed by a PGS qualified plumber to ensure the effective working order of your gas equipment.

In cases where rental accommodation is managed by an agent, the contract you have should make it obvious who is responsible for acquiring W4 Gas Safety Certificates from a Gas Safe approved engineer. Regardless of who assumes this responsibility, the Health and Safety Executive advises that you obtain copies of all tests and services performed on the building to ensure all legal requirements are met.
