The Emergence of the General Authority of Civil Aviation The debut of the civil aviation in the Kingdom goes back to the year 1354 A.H. corresponding to 1934 A.D. when one of the petrol companies that has later become part of ARAMCO Services Company has established a desert runway next to Jubail city.



The Kingdom owned its first civil aircraft in the year 1364 A.H. corresponding to 1945 A.D. of the model (DC-3 Dakota) to which two other aircrafts of the same model were added at a later stage.


The first civil aviation rule in the Kingdom was issued in the year 1372 A.H. corresponding to 1953 A.H. Upon its separation from the Saudi Royal Air Force, the Presidency of Civil Aviation used to have under its wing the Saudi Arabian Airlines & the Meteorology Department, until the Saudi Arabian Airlines was separated from the Presidency of Civil Aviation in the year 1379 A.H. corresponding to 1960 A.D., and that was transformed in the year 1383 A.H. corresponding to 1963 A.D. to an independent public institution.


In the year 1386 A.H. corresponding to 1966 A.D., the Meteorology Department was separated from the Presidency of Civil Aviation and its budget has become independent.


In the year 1397 A.H. corresponding to 1977 A.D., the name of the Presidency of Civil Aviation has been amended into the General Authority of Civil Aviation. During these years, the Kingdom has achieved unprecedented growth and quality leaps in the civil aviation domain and industry that covered major developments in passengers' transportation, air cargo, airports construction and equipment’s, air navigation and control.

Founded in 1913, the Compressed Gas Association represents members from all facets of the industrial and medical gas and equipment industry in the United States and Canada. CGA’s primary mission is to develop and promote safety standards and practices for the safe manufacture, transportation, storage, transfilling, and disposal of industrial and medical gases and their containers.


CGA is the recognized leader in the development of gas and equipment standards in North America and around the world, many of which are referenced by regulators at all levels of government. CGA members enjoy a number of services that benefit their businesses.


Bringing the Best Minds Together to Benefit All – Meetings and seminars are designed to share information about current industry safety and environmental practices and are often available only to CGA members. These meetings provide you opportunities to interact with decision makers in the industry and allow you to learn from industry experts about practices to help make your operations safer and more cost-effective.


 Keeping Your Employees Safe – Sharing information about incidents and updating safety standards are important in keeping your employees safe and strengthen CGA standards to help the industry operate safely.


 Emergency Help When You Need It – Being a CGA member allows you access to membership in the Compressed Gas Emergency Action Plan (COMPGEAP) in the United States and Canada, which provides for mutual aid in the event of a transportation incident.


COMPGEAP is recognized by CANUTEC, the Canadian federal government’s dangerous goods incident response organization, as a valuable resource in the event of accidents involving dangerous goods as Gases, Class 2.

The International Oxygen Manufacturers Association, Inc. (IOMA) is the only truly worldwide trade association of companies in the industrial and medical gas business.


There are other regional and national associations, but none of these has the worldwide scope of membership and participation, as does IOMA.


In this role, IOMA, through its Global Committee, is coordinating and prioritizing the harmonization of industrial gas safety standards to achieve common operating practices worldwide.


This work began in 1998 and involves the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) in the United States and Canada; the Asia Industrial Gases Association (AIGA), the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) in Europe, and the Japan Industrial & Medical Gases Association (JIMGA) in Japan.


IOMA's global focus, and the active involvement of the industry’s very top management, gives IOMA the unique perspective and position to try to bring about some commonality on safety standards for gases in all countries.


The technical and standards activities will remain within CGA, AIGA, EIGA, JIMGA, and other similar bodies around the world. IOMA's role is to bring top-management oversight to this process by prioritizing the work between and among the technical bodies to achieve harmonization.


The IOMA Annual Meeting is the principal session at which Association business is transacted, and, through qualified speakers from within and outside the industry, the members are informed of current trends in the industry, and the general business community, particularly from the management standpoint. The Annual Meeting is usually held in late Fall and provides all Members an opportunity for a free exchange of ideas, and for the making and strengthening of friendships.
