    There’s a important line to be drawn between dangerous installs and unregistered installs. Some good unregistered guys out there and some ***** “Gas Safe Installers” also.

    Why does the Gase Safe send it’s propaganda into the installer magazine? We’re in the club already....I’m sold! please focus on the unsuspecting members of public.

    Agree with the second paragraph.

    I don’t agree that there are any “good” unregistered guys out there as what they are doing is illegal

    And if they are good they should be registered.

    nobody says an unlicenced driver is better than a licenced one, the ramifications to a home owner eg insurance are
    serious, and unregistered fitters will be cheaper thus stealing from approved engineers

    So the above board "electrician" (trained to install smart meters) that caused an acquaintance of mine's house to burn down is "better" the a skilled but unregistered tradesman.
    Oh it's fine because he is "legal" so the insurance should pay out ..eventually....after massive and completely avoidable upset, loss of irreplaceable photos/kids drawings/childhood teddy etc etc.
    If registration is really to help people get better jobs done, it needs to be overhauled from the thinly veiled money making exercise that it is.
    (stand back and watch fuse)
