The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) is the trade association for the fuel cell and hydrogen energy industry, and is dedicated to the commercialization of fuel cells and hydrogen energy technologies. Fuel cells and hydrogen energy technologies deliver clean, reliable power to leading edge corporate, academic and public sector users, and FCHEA members are helping to transform our energy future. FCHEA represents the full global supply chain, including universities, government laboratories and agencies, trade associations, fuel cell materials, components and systems manufacturers, hydrogen producers and fuel distributors, utilities and other end users.


Where Can I Go to Learn More? 

There are a wealth of other resources available to learn more about fuel cell and hydrogen regulations, codes, and standards (RCS).  Please see the below list of links for more information:

  • The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Safety Report is a bi-monthly newsletter published by FCHEA which provides the latest developments on fuel cell and hydrogen RCS activities.  FCHEA also publishes through the Safety Report a Regulatory Affairs Matrix. This Matrix is a prioritized tracking document for the latest regulations, codes, and standards affecting the fuel cell and hydrogen industry.

  • The Fuel Cell Standards website provides organized data on existing RCS efforts with drill-down capability providing further information and contacts for individual efforts.

  • The Permitting Hydrogen Facilities website identifies model codes and standards to help local permitting officials deal with proposals for hydrogen fueling stations, fuel cell use for telecommunications facilities, and other hydrogen projects.

  • The Introduction to Hydrogen for Code Officials is a web-based course provides an overview of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies, how these technologies are used in real-world applications, and the codes and standards required for permitting them.

  • The Hydrogen Safety Best Practices Manual is an online manual that captures the wealth of knowledge and experience related to the safe handling and use of hydrogen that exists as a result of its extensive history in a wide variety of applications. The purpose of the manual, prepared collaboratively by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, is to share this knowledge gathered from numerous experts, public domain documents, and references in an online, easy-to-use manner.
