ISO Standards Impact Our World – U.S. Fluid Power Industry Needs Experts

NFPA is looking for engineers interested in participating in standards development activities as experts in ISO/TC 131 and/or the U.S. TAG to TC 131.

One of the strengths of ISO standardization is that the standards are created by the people who need them. In the United States, 153 industry experts participate on 11 technical advisory groups (TAGs) to drive all aspects of the standards development process, from deciding whether a new standard is needed, to defining the technical content. NFPA members are invited to volunteer as experts on one or more of the TC 131 subcommittees at both the national and international level. Learn more here.

To join or learn more about the U.S. TAG to TC 131, contact Denise Husenica at dhusenica@nfpa.com.
