BCGA publications are produced by and for the gas industry. As BCGA also involve and keep informed government bodies and regulators during the development of these publications they are generally accepted as being an appropriate and safe way of working. As such, they give positive examples of best practice and are recognized for this by the enforcement agencies, such as the Health and Safety Executive. In the event of any legal action they are also given due regard by the courts.
