What you should know about gas appliance servicing, installation and repair:

  1. All gas appliances, be they for Natural Gas or LPG, by law, must be installed by a registered gas installer. 
  2. From 26 June 2009 it became a legal requirement to be registered with the Registered Gas Installers of Ireland (RGII) to install, repair or service a Natural Gas appliance.
  3. From 27 June 2011 it became a legal requirement to be registered with the Registered Gas Installers of Ireland (RGII) to install, repair or service an LPG gas appliance.
  4. A Registered Gas Installer will give you an RGII certificate of conformance for every job carried out.
  5. If your installer is not RGII registered and does not present a certificate of conformance, then, in the event of a gas incident, your home insurance will not cover the cost of damages. A non-registered gas installer may also face a fine of up to €15,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment.

What is a Registered Gas Installer (RGI)?
An RGI is an installer who has at least a GID (Gas Installer Domestic) qualification or equivalent in gas safety which makes him/her competent to carry out gas works. He/She will also have a valid insurance and will have paid the annual subscription fee which entitles him/her to be on the register of RGIs and carry an ID Card with a valid date.

Benefits of using an RGI:

By using an RGI you have the peace of mind that you are dealing with a trained installer who has the required expertise in gas safety to ensure your gas installation is safe.

How do I recognize an RGI:
Each RGI carries an ID Card which is renewed annually. The ID on the card is a number from R0001 to R3000 and the photo is one of the installer. Ensure the card is in date.
