The introduction of the Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) on 1st August 1998 replaced the ACoP scheme for the certification of competence required by the Gas Safety (installation and use) Regulations. The scheme resulted in a national database of qualified and registered installers, managed by Gas Safe course Register.
