I have had a conversation with a friend who who is a CORGI registered gas installer. Under their regulations when a new gas appliance is fitted, the installer has to notify CORGI. This is done using an online form, paying for the service by debit/credit card.

 

When this is done, the information is stored in an electronic database and an automated letter is sent to the customer.

 

The cost - a staggering £2.50


The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

Below are extracts from CORGI website showing the price of an analogous electronic data management and letter despatching process to the banks:

 

Work Notification has arrived

Work notification is now a requirement of CORGI Registration. It has been introduced by CORGI to help Registered Installers comply with Government led changes and to increase safety standards with gas work. Under the Government changes, it is now a requirement in England and Wales for all new gas installations and replacements in domestic dwellings to be notified to the Local Building Control (LBC) to ensure they meet building regulations.

This requirement is placed upon the home owner and they have two ways to achieve this. Firstly, they can arrange for a local building control officer to visit the appliance to confirm it meets the regulations. Research indicates the fee levied for this service is typically in the region of £300 but is dependant upon the borough. Secondly, the home owner can contract a CORGI registered installer who can self certificate their work and remove the need for the direct involvement of a building control officer.

Work Notification has been introduced to allow CORGI Registered Installers to meet this requirement by notifying CORGI at a much lower cost. Once work has been notified, CORGI will notify the LBC and also issue a certificate to the homeowner. This certificate will be used to form part of the Home Information Pack which will be a legal requirement when selling houses from January 2007.

To minimise the impact of notification upon businesses, notification to CORGI will be a paperless process. Notification can be made to CORGI either online at http://www.corgi-notify.com, which will cost £2.50 or over the phone by calling 0870 8888 777, which will cost £4.50.

Installers will be able to notify CORGI of an installation over the phone between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday, or 24 hours a day, seven days a week online. An average call should take approximately three minutes.

Notifications need to be made for each address where work is undertaken and relates to the property. Installers will be able to notify up to six different activities per notification and can pay by direct debit, or use a credit or debit card. Installers will have 10 working days following an installation or exchange to notify CORGI. Click here to download a notification checklist.

Surely this is good evidence. If CORGI can do this for that price - then the banks would be in breach of duty for doing it for excessivly more?

This is exactly my view. I intend to use it as evidence if my case comes to court

Maybe Stephen Hone should use it, if his case ever goes to court.

The more I think about this, the better it gets.

 

CORGI is a non profit making organisation. They had to recover costs of setting up this quickly but charge is still only £2.50. The Banks have had 20+ years for their system.

 

If anyone does it by phone - i.e. manual intervention - the extra cost is £2.

 

CORGI also, apart from recording in a database, notify the local council and the household. These are more computor transactions than the banks perform.

 

I do believe that Steven shouls look this.
