Move gas meter if CORGI registered?

Hi,
I have read elsewhere that it is legal for a CORGI registered gas fitter to move a gas meter if it is less than 2 metres from the original location. If it is more than this then Transco need to do it.
Can anyone confirm if this is the case ?
Thanks for any advice,
Pete

No. A registered fitter can work on meters only if they're qualified do do so. Their CORGI card will show (on the reverse) a list of categories of work they're qualified to do, of which domestic meters is one. Yer average Joe Corgi usually has Pipework, Cookers, Fires, Water Heaters and Central Heating, so may not work on meters (except connecting 'installation pipework' - i.e. the pipe from the meter to appliances - to them).

OK, didn't know there were different categories. Looks like I need to find one of the rarer CORGIs.
Thanks very much

When I moved into my present property some 5 years ago, the quantam card gas meter was inside the kitchen directly behind the gas box which was outside on the wall.I had it changed for a credit meter. I left it for a while then when Mum had a gas leak and the Transco man arrived, I was chatting to him about it. He said, what ever you do don't call BG as they would charge you an arm and a leg to put it back where it should be, ask a corgi registered fitter. This I did, cost me 40 and all he did was undo the two pipes on top, take it out side, undo the connecting pipe between the gas in and out, put the meter in place and put the connecting piece back where the meter had come from. I am confident enough to have done the job myself but thought BG kept paperwork as to the location of it. Nope, Transco man confirmed that they only have paperwork stating that their is a meter at the address, not where it is located. morgan
