At Trust A Trader, the safety of our customers is paramount. We work hard to protect our customers from rogue traders and help them to find local, rated traders who they can trust to undertake work to a high standard and, most importantly, safely. In a bid to promote excellence across industries, we encourage our traders to make sure that they have relevant professional memberships and certification, from organisations such as CORGI.

CORGI was established in 1970, as a result of a gas explosion in 1968 which killed five people and injured 17 others. The organisation was established to promote safety when working with gas; by 1991, CORGI registration became a legal requirement for all traders working with gas appliances.

As of the 1st April 2009, the Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain.

Today, CORGI operates as CORGI Services Limited (CSL) and is the fund-raising arm of The Gas Safety Trust – a registered charity. CORGI offers a range of memberships and certifications, which demonstrate that members work to high standards, and that they provide their customers with a safe and professional service. They also offer advice and cover plans to homeowners, helping them to protect their homes and families.
