Regulations, Codes & Standards
Information regarding the safe use, transport and storage of hydrogen and fuel cell technology, and FCHEA's roll in that process.
Codes & Standards
The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association works closely with the U.S. National Laboratories, National Codes and Standards Development Organizations, and the International Standards Development Organizations to keep interested parties informed about developments in hydrogen and fuel cell requirements.
In addition, FCHEA facilitates stakeholder meetings through our member Working Groups on Portable Power, Stationary Power, Solid Oxide Fuel Cells, and Transportation. The Transportation Working Group’s scope includes tracking and contributing to the codes, standards, and regulations for fuel cell electric vehicles and hydrogen fueling infrastructure. Our Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Working Group works to promote solid oxide fuel cell technologies. Our Portable Power Working Group focuses on the transportation and distribution of portable fuel cell systems and their fueling cartridges. The Stationary Power Working Group addresses regulations affecting the deployment of stationary fuel cell systems and the overarching power generation industry.
FCHEA also maintains the Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Safety Report, a website and electronic newsletter published every other month which highlights the latest developments for U.S. and international codes and standards for fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. Interested parties may sign up to receive an email announcing when the latest issue is posted.
