Gas Safe logos are now available to ARLA Propertymark members in sticker form for you to display in your offices.

The stickers have been designed by Gas Safe specifically for ARLA Propertymark members to allow you to promote safety messages to landlords and tenants and back up landlord messaging about the importance of quality maintenance, staying safe and using a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Order yours now from the logo display area of the ARLA Propertymark online shop.

There are strict rules in place concerning how the Gas Safe Register brand can be used and these stickers have been created as a result of our work in partnership with Gas Safe but we must stress that they are designed solely for use in your office or retail premises, they can not be displayed in other locations or vehicles.

Don’t forget that ARLA Propertymark also has a member's only fact sheet on Landlords’ Legal Responsibility for Gas Safety and there is a really useful infographic provided by Gas Safe.
