CYS/TC 22: The Gateway to European and International Standardisation

The Cyprus SPE Section/AAPG/SPE Student Chapter cordially invites you to the following talk:

CYS/TC 22: The Gateway to European and International Standardisation


The oil and gas industry is an internationally operating industry with multinationals and companies operating across the world. International standards support the industry in conducting its operations efficiently and safely by establishing the state-of-the-art, increasing interoperability, and taking away barriers. ISO/TC 67 “Materials, equipment and offshore structures for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries” is the international standards committee for developing and publishing international standards serving the petroleum industry. Regions and countries are encouraged to adopt these standards. CEN/TC 12 is the equivalent European Committee which develops the European standards for the industry, mainly by adopting the standards of ISO/TC 67.

To better support the development of quality infrastructure and to foster improved engagement from stakeholders involved into the hydrocarbons sector of Cyprus, CYS has formed CYS/TC 22 “Hydrocarbons.” The committee provides fertile ground to discuss among stakeholders their standardisation and other quality related needs as well as it allows their input and positions on the development of standards to be heard at the European and the International level.
