If he is really CORGI registered to work for you ( and not just the Council, BG or another employer etc. ) then he will complete the Benchmark Certificate and inform CORGI under Gas Work Notification and they will inform the local Building Control Department.

Make sure that the system is cleaned fully. If not you'll have problems and the corgi chap will blame you as the installer ...!

I hope you've used a band a boiler. A mate of mine asked me to commission two lately. I couldn't do a thing for him. Our hands are tied so tight these days.

Band A and B are both fine. You will also presumably be wanting him to fill in the manufacturer's guarantee registration, where you will expect him to say that he has installed the boiler and what system treatments he has carried out. If there is a problem with the boiler in a month or few, and you call out the manufacturer they may insist it is an installation problem which he should pay for.
I sometimes do safety checks on boilers shich I suspect have been diy-installed. But I won't fill in the benchmark or guarantee forms.

thanks ChrisR i hadnt thought about the guarantee but i certainly woudnt expect him to pay for anything.
i have fitted sevral boilers in the past (diy) but now with the new regs i am trying to stay within the law he is going to carge me 100 for the test and sign off and i want to make sure i get the right thing,
is it worth the trouble ?
what is the minimum i would need to get him to do ?
is a safety check the way to go ?

Yes it's worth the trouble, imho, and just get him to fill in all you can!
