SIGTTO to focus on IGC and IGF revision work moving into 2025

27 Nov 2018

The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) in its Strategic Plan extended to 2025 says it intends to focus on the revision work of two codes supporting the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel.

The codes are specifically, the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC Code) and the International Code of Safety for Ships using Gases or other Low-Flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code).

SIGTTO has an ‘observer status’ as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

It attends IMO committee and subcommittee meetings, as appropriate, and over the years has written/co-sponsored submissions to IMO on various matters related to the LNG/ LPG sector of the maritime industry.

Moving forward, it intends to maintain close contacts with other NGOs, principally the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF), the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF), the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (Intertanko), the International Group of LNG Importers (GIIGNL) and BIMCO.

“Where appropriate, we co-ordinate our activities to ensure a consistent industry message is conveyed to the wider world,” it states.
