Benefits of Membership

Government Relations

SACGA will represent all facets of the industry – manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and transporters, and will be the compressed gas industry “voice” in the formation of legislation and regulations. SACGA will ensure that members are given early warning regarding regulatory and legislative developments. Working Groups will be formed from Association members to proactively work with Government Departments and recognised bodies i.e. Departments of Labour, Health, Environmental Affairs, Transport and the SABS to develop safe policies and sound regulations.

Establish contacts in the Compressed Gas Industry

Opportunities for networking with key decision makers in the industry. Sharing information about current industry practices.

Development of technical standards and publications

SACGA members will lead the way in writing and revising safety and technical publications. As a member of a Working Group or ad hoc Committee, you will have a voice in the development and production of these standards and safety publications that promote a safer industry. Technical standards and safe practices are key to maintaining a self-regulated industry.
