The survey on MOT style of servicing was conducted online by CORGI Technical Services between 12 December 2013 and 10 January 2014 amongst managers responsible for gas safety in Housing Associations across the UK.
The survey received 205 responses. The respondents collectively have responsibility for circa 2 million properties (1,984,065).
The survey was carried out prior to the Gas Safety Management Conference on Tuesday 29th & Wednesday 30th April and the results werre published at the Conference.
The survey gathered views about moving to an ‘MOT style’ for gas safety checks, which should result in large scale savings and greater efficiencies in meeting the requirements of the Gas Safety Regulations. The results will be taken to the Gas Safety Management Conference 2014 for further discussion on 29th & 30th April 2014 at The Belfry. These views can then be discussed with wider stakeholders and used to lobby ministers and government departments on behalf of AGSM and Gas Forum members and to facilitate changes to regulations.
