Coronavirus Updates

The Association of Safety Compliance Professionals (ASCP) and AGSM / AESM members have benefitted from frequent COVID-19 updates; this is a member benefit. However in the public interest, and whilst our nation is in crisis, we are pleased to announce that CORGI Technical Services customers and the sector in general, will have access to these regular updates.

We are committed to keeping you informed about COVID-19 and to offer our support in these unprecedented times. Where information is lacking, please be assured that we are working with official bodies in an attempt to gain clarity and guidance. Please see the below Bulletins.

We are here to support you  – please do contact us if you have any specific questions at info@corgitechnical.com.

Get on board with the ‘COVID or Compliance’ campaign launched by the Association of Safety & Compliance Professionals (ASCP) in association with CORGI Technical Services. Together we campaign for all non-emergency work to be suspended, including the routine annual gas safety check, under Regulation 36 of the Gas Safety Regulations. Find out more here
