Capita secures gas registration scheme contract from HSE Capita Group has won a £14m-per-year contract from the Health and Safety Executive for the gas installer registration scheme.

The group will be given incentives to continuously improve gas safety and services to consumers and installers and be held to account through challenging performance indicators.

Capita will be responsible for introducing and promoting a new independent brand, which will provide an opportunity to promote gas safety messages.

The contract has been awarded for a term of 10 years and will run from 1 April 2009. It replaces the current scheme operated by Corgi.

In 2006, an HSE review of the domestic gas safety regime and discussions with stakeholders identified a need for change.
