The GPC Chairman reports to the Board and the committee’s main tasks are the initiation and supervision of technical project activities.

The Human Element Committee (HEC), formed in 2016, deals with gas specific human element related issues as they relate to the gas shipping and terminal sectors.

Both committees met at six monthly internals. Working Groups are established, as the need arises, to conduct specific projects and are comprised of experts within this specific field.

The Panel Meeting is open to all Members and has no restriction on attendance. Meetings are usually held at six monthly intervals once or twice a year and comprise of presentations from members, manufacturers and the Society’s Secretariat that are of specific interest to the liquefied gas industry.
