British Compressed Gases Association

BCGA's Mission is to promote safety in the use, storage, transportation and handling of industrial, food and medical gases, which we do in part through our many respected publications. These are kept up-to-date through regular updates.

The British Compressed Gases Association (BCGA) was established in 1971, having previously existed as the British Acetylene Manufacturers Association, which was originally formed in 1901.

BCGA is a not-for-profit Trade Association, representing the interests of 100+ member companies; manufacturers and suppliers of bulk liquid and cylinder gases; manufacturers of cylinders, vessels and tanks for their storage and distribution; manufacturers of equipment for controlling the application and use of gases; installers of distribution pipework and systems; providers of specialist safety, health, quality, inspection and training services.
