AIGA is technical and safety focused and brings together the national industrial gases associations in Asia with the objective to raise the standard of safety and environmental care across Asia in the use and handling of industrial gases.

AIGA is registered as a non-profit society based in Singapore. It aims to foster the exchange of technical information among its members in the safe handling and use of industrial, specialty and medical gases, and to have close liaison with national authorities, in order to work towards the highest level of safety and environmental care across Asian countries.

AIGA works in co-operation with the other regional associations, namely, CGA (U.S), EIGA (Europe) and JIMGA (Japan). It actively participates in the harmonization of standards across the gas industry on a global level with the other regional gases associations.
