Some ships in northern Europe have been using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as their fuel source for over a decade, with an extremely good safety record. As the use of LNG fuelled vessels spreads to other parts of the world and many more parties became involved, the need to standardize LNG bunkering operations at the international level became apparent. A new ISO standard will ensure LNG-fuelled vessels can bunker in a safe and sustainable way.
ISO standards and transport
From submarines to spacecraft, ISO standards cover all aspects of transport, including road vehicles, ships, airplanes and aerospace systems.
ISO standards in the automotive industry, for example, help ensure the high quality and performance of cars and trucks and improve vehicle and road traffic safety, providing benefits for manufacturers, regulators, vehicle owners and road users.
In the aerospace industry, safe and reliable construction and maintenance of aircraft are paramount, to which standards contribute.
ISO standards also enable innovation, by developing terminology and guidelines for new technology as seen in intelligent transport systems, electric cars and other solutions to reduce our impact on the environment.
