INFORMATION ABOUT CORGI
CORGI was formed in
1970 as the Confederation for the Registration of Gas Installers.
This was in response to the tightening up of gas safety that took
place after the Ronan Point disaster of the 1960s. Ronan Point was
a London tower block devastated in a massive gas blast which
claimed several lives.
In the early days CORGI
was a body to which gas installers could become affiliated on a
voluntary basis. However registration became mandatory in 1991
when CORGI registration became a legal requirement for businesses,
including self-employed people, working on gas fittings or
Fox & Co as a company are
not registered with Corgi for the simple reason, the engineers
involved in gas works working on behalf of Fox & Co are already
Corgi-Registered. If in doubt, ask the engineers for their ID.
