President Message


The High Pressure Gas Safety Institute of Japan (KHK), a specialized institute ensuring high pressure gas safety, was established in 1963 and privatized in 1986 based on the High Pressure Gas Safety Act in order to ensure safety and prevent a disaster of high pressure gas.

KHK has conducted a wide range of services such as inspections of high pressure gas, safety education and training for private sector companies, accident investigation and technical cooperation for agencies and companies in foreign countries.

We at KHK pledge every effort to encourage self-regulated activities in high pressure gas-related industries to prevent accidents. In furtherance of this, I humbly request all of you the understanding and cooperation.

President Yuzo Ichikawa
