International rules and standards are the national treasure of countries that participate in their development, study and implement them in national requirements and in the industry.

An important role in the development of international rules and standards is played by non-governmental organizations that have a consultative status in international organizations.

The transport of dangerous goods by various modes of transport is regulated by dozens of international regulations and many standards.

The leading international institutions in this area are the UN Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the international organization for standardization ISO.

A set of rules and standards helps to organize the safe and cost-effective transportation of dangerous goods.

"IDGCA" NP has a consultative status in the Subcommittee of UN Experts, and is also actively working in the international organization for standardization ISO in terms of improving standards.

On June 7, experts of "IDGCA" NP participated in the informal working group of the Subcommittee of UN Experts on the development of new rules regarding the manufacture of fittings and valves for portable tanks made of composite and metal-composite materials.

The new section of the Rules will be presented for discussion by the UN Experts at the upcoming 60th session in Geneva, which will be held from June 27 to July 6.

Today, June 8, the discussion of new requirements for cryogenic technology in terms of portable tanks for the transport of cryogenic liquids, within the framework of the ISO/TC 220 committee, ended.
