The development of universally accepted standards for hydrogen refueling stations received a new impetus as the new Directive on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure (COM2013/18, could include existing international standards through an accelerated EU procedure. Recent meetings with key stakeholders organized by the European Standard bodies CEN – CENELEC resulted in a few recommendations how to move this process forward taking into account the need for a fast process

The work of the ISO Technical Committee 197/ 20100 work, that was interrupted a few years due to lack of consensus, was taken up last November 19 by the approval of a  ISO New Work Item Proposal (ISO/TC 197 WG 24 (see N 603 and 613 of ISO/TC 197 – of ISO 19880-1 (former ISO/TS  20100) proposed by France that now needs to  work towards acceptable standards to allow the roll out of the planned 400 HRS  network in Germany as well as the HRS ambitions in for example the Netherlands, Denmark that voted against the proposal.  The last International Partnership for the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Economy held in Fukuoka, Japan, demonstrated that typical HRS authorisations  in Japan are still considered too long that even Japanese prime minister Abe recently called for a one-stop procedure; Japan also voted against the new ISO proposal. The authorisation of a hydrogen stations at the bus depot of Ligurian bus operator Riviera Trasporti,  as presented at the International Fuel Cell Bus forum last October, required  a 30 cm cement wall even around a mobile refueler!

In view of the ISO 197 meetings in Paris the week of December 3 -5, 2013 and the different approaches around the world with regards to HRS authorisations, the EHA calls on the national experts, involved in the development of HRS standards, to respect current safety practice in the different HRS frontrunner  countries around the world, in order to allow a quick uptake of national HRS networks and to avoid confusion among first customers and policy makers.
