The Purpose of the Safety and Technical Advisory Council (STAC)

The Council was created out of an outspoken need in the Methane Based Industry to have a transparent, non-biased, non-competitive, approachable body for Safety and Technical queries. The body was established on 20 September 2016, under guidance of the Southern African Gas Association (SAGA) and Industry Stakeholders.

The creation of STAC under the umbrella of the SAGA is purely as an advisory body and directly reporting to SAGA. The role of STAC is to investigate research and advise on concerns and/or requests by any person or organisation,  and deliver an official recommendation to SAGA on the matter upon conclusion of an investigation, assessment or review of the safety and or technical issues at hand.  STAC will also review international trends in safety and technical matters including best practices and or publish safety and technical bulletins on the same. The aim will also be to communicate best practices, nationally or internationally, via Safety and Technical Bulletins.

Any Safety and or Technical query or issue relevant to the Methane Based Industry in Southern Africa can be raised for the attention of STAC by completing the form below for the attention of a Council Member:
