United Nations Round Table

Global Harmonization of Regulations, Codes & Standards (RC&S)for Gaseous Fuels

Prepared by Jeffrey Seisler, representing

& the International Association for NGVs (IANGV)


Randy Dey (Global Cooperation Group), representing

the International Standards Organisation (ISO)

for the 48th session of GRPE

rationale for the round table
Rationale for the Round Table
  • There are natural synergies between NGVs & H2Vs (and their fuelling infrastructures).
  • Global harmonization of RC&S is a key factor in the introduction of hydrogen and hydrogen vehicles (H2Vs) into the market.
  • The development of the global natural gas vehicle (NGV) industry in the last two decades has resulted in a need to harmonize existing RC&S developed in different countries and by different organizations.
scope of the round table
Scope of the Round Table
  • Global harmonization of RC&S for gaseous fuels, which includes natural gas and hydrogen for transportation applications.
