The Center for Hydrogen Safety (CHS) – a global organization leading the safe advancement of hydrogen as the next generation fuel – has announced its partnership with Korea Gas Safety Corporation (KGS). KGS is Korea’s only specialist agency that dedicates itself to protecting citizens’ lives from the threat of gas accidents and contributes to the development of the gas safety industry.

With the addition of KGS to its member organizations, CHS continues to grow its international reach and reinforce the global impact of its safety resources. As one of more than 70 member organizations and 12 strategic partners working with CHS, KGS is driving Korean efforts to scale its safe and timely transition to hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and support the production and distribution of hydrogen and related technologies.

“KGS’s dedication to researching and instilling gas safety practices aligns well with the mission of CHS,” said Nick Barilo, executive director, CHS. “South Korea is playing a significant role in the maturing hydrogen economy. We are thrilled to welcome KGS to our community and look forward to a fruitful relationship where we can promote hydrogen safety.”

“In collaboration with CHS – one of the leading global organizations on hydrogen safety – we look forward to enhancing our contribution to the advancement of hydrogen safety and revitalizing the Korean hydrogen economy. Together, we are taking important steps to achieve carbon neutrality,” said Haejong Lim, president & CEO of KGS.

KGS offers a variety of safety management services including risk management, system management and integrity management. The organization also assists with manufacture registration, explosive-proof equipment certification, gas product certification and system certification. KGS seeks to achieve the lowest level of gas accident indicator and implement comprehensive hydrogen safety management measures by 2025.

Established in 2018, CHS is a technical community within the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). CHS member benefits include access to conferences and working groups, safety guidance, training and workshops, and a global forum to address emerging issues and impact technical solutions.
