The CER is very pleased to announce that it has appointed the Register of Electrical Contractors of Ireland (RECI) as the Gas Safety Supervisory Body (GSSB). RECI intends to form a company limited by guarantee called the Register of Gas Installers of Ireland (RGII) with the sole purpose of operating as the GSSB. The RGII will be a wholly owned subsidiary of RECI and will be responsible for regulating gas installers with respect to safety. RGII will carry out this function on behalf of the CER. It is envisaged that the RGII will be in a position to begin registering gas installers from 5th January 2009 and that the regulatory system will become fully operational during 2009. Further information in relation to the new regulatory regime will be made available to gas installers and the industry in the near future.
