The aim of this plan is to ensure that the Society remains relevant and fit for purpose to meet the needs and expectations of the membership in the 21st century.

SIGTTO has been organised to promote safe and responsible operation of gas tankers, marine terminals and other shipping handling gas as a cargo; to develop advice and guidance for best industrial practice among its members and promote criteria for best practice to all who have responsibilities for, or interest in, the safety of gas tankers, other ships carrying gas as a cargo and terminals.

SIGTTO’s principal role will be to advocate measures to enhance the safety of gas shipping, carriage of gas as a cargo and terminal operations internationally. It will represent the interests of its members, in matters concerning the safe operation of gas tankers, carriage of gas as a cargo and marine terminals, to the International Maritime Organisation. It will consult with the IMO, government agencies and other non-governmental organisations.
