About Propane Education and Research Council
The mission of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is to promote the safe and efficient use of odorized propane gas. It accomplishes this through wide-ranging programs that support safety, training, and the development and commercialization of promising propane technologies.
PERC was authorized by the U.S. Congress with passage of the Propane Education and Research Act (PERA), Public Law 104-284, signed into law on October 11, 1996. In a referendum soon afterward, propane producers and marketers overwhelmingly approved its formation.
The Council is a 21-member board appointed by the National Propane Gas Association and the Gas Processors Association, both of which appoint nine Council members and cooperate in the appointment of three public members.
PERC is authorized to carry out programs, projects, and activities in three key areas: safety, training, and research and development.
