Technical standards IGEM produces a large range of Technical Standards in the following series:

These are recognised as trusted industry standards, used to assist in compliance with national legislation and official approved codes of practice and guidance. The standards are drafted by expert panels representing a cross section of the relevant parts of the gas industry. Regulatory bodies including the Health & Safety Executive, Ofgem and Gas Safe Register contribute to the drafting process.
The drafts are issued to the industry and other stakeholders for review and comment prior to publication and, thus, take into account the sometimes broad range of views on the content. The professional status of IGEM ensures its standards reflect the best possible levels of safety, practice and quality within reasonable cost.
