the use of standards

What is TC 67?

ISO Technical Committee 67 harmonizes and manages worldwide standards regarding the oil & gas industry. Its purpose is to achieve (international) conformity of oil and gas products. Members of this committee are industry professionals, from many different countries, with different professional backgrounds. They all share a common interest in the developments within the industry regarding safety, uniformity and/or the international application of their products. Together, they work on reaching common grounds where possible.

More specifically, TC 67 develops standards regarding materials, equipment and offshore structures used in drilling, production, transport by pipelines and processing of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons within the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. Excluded are aspects of offshore structures subject to IMO requirements (ISO/TC 8).
