working groups






    IGUS is the International Group of Experts on the Explosion Risks of Unstable Substances. It brings together from all over the world independent experts on the risks of dangerous substances.

The aim of IGUS is to exchange information on the behaviour of unstable substances, with respect to production, handling, storage and transport.
Aspects studied are, for instance, explosive properties, thermal stability, flammability and reactivity. IGUS works in support of the international bodies dealing with dangerous goods regulations.

Members of IGUS are working for governments and independent research organisations. Experts from industry can attend meetings after invitation by the chairman.
