The U. S. Technical Advisory Group (U.S. TAG) to ISO/TC 131 provides input and promotes U.S. interests in the development of the International Standards Organization (ISO) standards for fluid power products and systems. NFPA administers the U.S. TAG on behalf of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The membership of the U.S. TAG is made up of 150 participants from more than 80 U.S. companies, universities, government, technical societies and trade associations.
Over the past six months NFPA welcomed three new committee members to the TAG:
- Donna Sullivan, Lydall Filtration
- Mary Dyksterhouse, Parker Hannifin Corp.
- Ted Amling, Parker Hannifin Corp.
NFPA recognizes the value of standards development. Experience has shown that the best standards are those developed by companies that make products and systems and those who apply, service, and use them. There continues to be a need for member companies and their customers to get involved in the development of ISO standards for fluid power.
