    Hi Guys,

    Hoping some of you can help me out slightly as I’m bricking it at the minute. I am going to register for my own Gas safety registration soon and am really worried about the inspection.
    I have always been under an employers registration and have never actually have a inspection of my own.
    I don’t really know what to expect and am worried as I don’t actually have any jobs of my own to take them to so not even sure how I could be inspected as such?

    Any pointers would be

    That's cos you have to use the forums OWN emojis NOT the ones on your phone or whatever :confused:
    Glad you weren't hit by a bus anyway ;)
    There is a viscous rumour that one day UKPF might join the emoji 19th century. :eek:

    You’re worried about something you haven’t got yet. Chill out. Relax. Your first inspection can be a family member if needed.

    your first meet is to get on the regester , I doubt if he will want to see any of your work , or at least thats how it used to be .
    Lots of questions, concentrate on what he asks , and the most obvious one dont be a clever **** which I doubt you will , good luck .

    The initial is as above a quick coffee and a chit chat. A few questions. If you don’t know don’t guess. Go and get the viper bible and get the answer he wants.

    When I had my 1st inspection after getting my own registration last year he came to my house 1st. Few questions and chit chat. Then I took him to 2 installations and in 1 I did a tightness test and the other I had to do a gas rate. He checked through my benchmark paperwork and left. He covered the Ipswich area. Not sure if they do things differently up and down the country. I had 3 months to gather work to show him.

    Technically it should be the same everywhere.

    Very informal, just chatted about where I’d worked and jobs i’d done, a few bits of tech talk and that was about it.
    I got the feeling that I was being grilled, and as long as I said the right things in the right lingo, it was ok for him, never even got my tools out.
    Let’s face it, I could teach my 6 y/o son to gas rate an appliance and do a tightness test, that’s the easy bit.
    Just take it all in your stride pal. :)

    There is nothing to worry about they understand that your nervous and really put you at ease.
    When I had mine it was just chat a few questions that you should know then he watched me commission a boiler that I’d just installed

    Yet many people get both wrong.

    Cheers for the replies guys.
    So it’s likely that the first one will be informal and the second will be tonsee work?.

    What type of questions did you guys get?.
