National Gases Associations

Where standardisation and regulatory issues are involved, CEN, ISO and UN meetings provide common fora for the harmonisation initiative. Work in these fora is conducted through national delegations, who seek advice from the industry experts in their countries. In order that the Industrial Gas Industry is heard to speak with a single voice, it is therefore important that there is consistency of approach between EIGA and the national industrial gases associations, so that the national delegations do not receive conflicting advice.

In order to promote this consistency, and again avoid unnecessary duplication of work, EIGA holds meetings with representatives of national gas associations to establish how such harmonisation can be achieved, and to ensure that an effective communication and liaison process is maintained.
