Brussels, Belgium --- (METERING.COM) --- May 6, 2011 - The two associations, FAREGAZ (European Association of Manufacturers of Gas Pressure and Safety Devices) and FACOGAZ (Association of European Gas Meter Manufacturers), were merged into a new association named FARECOGAZ – the association of European manufacturers of gas metering equipment, gas pressure regulators and associated safety devices and stations, in Brussels on March 31, 2011.

Like its two predecessors, FARECOGAZ will not pursue any economic purpose, but sees itself as a technical and scientific ambassador for its members. These represent 90% of the European market for gas metering equipment, gas pressure regulators, associated gas safety devices and instrumentation and control systems for the gas infrastructure.
