Supporting Association

SGMF’s sole purpose is to encourage the safe and responsible operations of vessels using gas as fuel and all marine activities relating to the supply of gas used for fuel; to develop advice and guidance for best industrial practice among its members; and to promote criteria for best practice to all who have responsibilities for, or an interest in, the use of gas as marine fuel.

In advocating measures to enhance safety in the use of gas as fuel for shipping internationally, SGMF will represent the interests of its members at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) once its NGO status is formally recognized by that body. It will consult with IMO, government agencies and other non-governmental organizations in exercising this principal role.
