Financial report

The Vice-President: Stefan Messer

Actual Results

Based on our expectations for the fourth quarter operations, the estimated Result for 2009 will show a deficit of about 1,000 € to be in line with the budgeted result of +/- 0 €. However compared to the trend of the previous years, we see a clear improvement in terms of the reduction of the deficit of our Association.

Financial Report

Safety advisory group sag

New Document

The Globally Harmonised Document “Selection of Personal Protective Equipment – IGC Doc 136/09/E” (revision of Doc 136/05) has been published on the EIGA website.

This provides guidance on the selection and use of PPE.


“The safe transport, use and storage of Acetylene cylinders” is the title of a new campaign. The aim is to inform in a short way about the characteristics of acetylene and troubleshooting

e.g. leak or cylinder in fire by a leaflet.

Safety Information

Three new Safety Information-Human Factors have been published in the second half year. They contain usefulinformation to support the change of safety related behaviour.

HF 07/09 – Communications on Safety

Communication is vital to transfer information and improve knowledge. The Safety Information supports you to analyse your current information situation in your company and gives recommendation how to improve.

HF 08/09 – Alarm Handling

Alarm Handling or Alarm Management is an issue for any site and process when human response on this is requested.The Safety Information supports you to analyse and to define corrective actions if necessary.

HF 09/09 – Fatigue from Working Pattern – Shiftwork and Overtime

The Safety Information contains useful practical details about the background and the consequences coming up from excessive working time or poorly designed shift patterns.

The Peter Jackson Award for the best improvement of the safety performance over a period of five years was handedover in recognition of the achievements of Messer B.V.


Safety Advisory Group (SAG)

Igc report mark begg 2010 2011 chairman of the industrial gases council

As I look at the WG reports, despite the tough economic back drop that we have all faced, I am impressed by the progress we continue to make in our core activities. A combined approach of developing new documents, of keeping existing documents evergreen and of adopting new and creative ways to bring safety, health and environment matters to our members, employees and customers in a modern and meaningful way continues to be effectively adopted by our WGs and the industry experts that lead them and participate in them.

MGC Report

Caroline Lloyd, 2009 Chairwoman of the Medical Gases Council

The MGC has reviewed its mission, which is summarized below and this is now subject to approval by the Board of Directors:

1. To set standards for our industry and users in the safesupply and handling of medical gases and respiratory homecare services through the development of best practicesand the production of Medical Gases Council publications;

2. To provide regulatory agencies and healthcare providers with specialist advice on the standards used on the safe production, supply, handling and administration of medical gases and healthcare services in line with the pharmaceuticalindustry;

3. To promote our industry in the supply of medical gases and respiratory homecare services, focusing on the quality and efficacy of our products and services to enhance patient safety.

As part of our stakeholder engagement programme we havefinalised a presentation which we will use when we meet these key stakeholders. A meeting is being set up with Enterprise and Industry Directorate General Consumer Goods, Unit F2 Pharmaceuticals in the European Commission. The purpose of the meeting is to highlight both the involvement and importance of EIGA in the medical gases business and explain some of the issues we encounter as an industry, e.g. the different interpretations by the pharmaceutical authorities of legislation and to the impact of its implementation on medical gases and homecare.

Both Working Groups in the MGC continue to work on a number of items. The Medical Gases Working Group (WG-7) is focused on defining the validation requirements for ASUs, tanker filling and cylinder filling taking into account two reference documents, GAMP 5 and ICH 9 on Quality Risk Management. The Homecare Working Group (WG-10) is finalising the Good Homecare Practice which sets out the fundamental of safety and quality guidelines for homecare supply to patients.
