Work has commenced on the development of a completely new set of ISO standards intended to certify personnel involved in the Gaseous Fuels industry. The task belongs to WG 9, one of seven active Working Groups under ISO TC22/SC41 — Specific Aspects for Gaseous Fuels — the Technical Committee dealing specifically with all fuel systems and tasks related to the use of Gas as a fuel for road vehicles. WG 9 is led by NGV Global.
ISO specifies the Scope of subcommittee SC41 as “Specifications of construction, installation and test of components for vehicles using gaseous fuels, including their assemblies and the interface with refuelling systems”. SC41 has 7 active working groups, 18 participating countries and 12 observing countries. It has 32 standards under development/
ISO TC22/SC41 Working Groups
|WG 3||Fuel system components and refuelling connector for vehicles propelled by gaseous fuel|
|WG 4||Fuel system components and refuelling connector for vehicles propelled by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)|
|WG 5||Fuel system components and refuelling connector for vehicles propelled by gaseous hydrogen or by blends of hydrogen and natural gas|
|WG 6||Fuel system components and refuelling connector for vehicles propelled by Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)|
|WG 7||General safety requirements for gaseous fuelled vehicles and terminology|
|WG 8||Fuel system components and refueling connector for vehicles propelled by Dimethyl Ether (DME)|
|WG 9||Training, competence and conformity assessment|
Working groups 3 and 9 are under the leadership of NGV Global’s Executive Director, Diego Goldin.
- WG 3 is carrying out the revision of the standards for CNG fuel system components (ISO 15500 series) following the receipt of comments from members during a ballot late 2017. Goldin has led WG 3 for ten years.
- Following receipt of a proposal in 2017 which was adopted last month, WG 9 is starting to develop a completely new set of standards intended to certify personnel involved in the Gaseous Fuels industry.
NGV Global members can join the working groups or participate through NGV Global’s status as liaison in SC41 and in the different working groups.
