Accidents during the transfer of toxic gases are often dramatic and nearly always very dramatic in the case of liquefied toxic gases.

The objective of this EIGA document is to describe the best practices for the safe transfer and use of toxic liquefied gases in transportable gas containers; in particular the filling of small containers (e.g. cylinders) with toxic liquefied gases from large containers (e.g. ISO-containers and pressure drums).

The document recommends risk management measures to protect people and the environment.
