How to develop a standard?
The default method is to follow the normal ISO procedures, as described in the ISO Directives Part 1 & Part 2. Another method is to use the Supplementary Procedure for ISO TC 67 committees working together with IOGP, to carry out technical work for the purpose of the development and maintenance of ISO standards.
ISO cooperation with IOGP
IOGP and ISO agreed in June 2012 to an Interim Solution that responded to temporary industry uncertainties associated with trade regulations (EU and US) and their applicability to standardization in the oil and gas sector. The Interim Solution allowed the continuation of the development of prioritized ISO/TC 67 work items. The Interim Solution involved the development and publication of draft standards by IOGP.
This solution was replaced in 2017 by the IOGP Standards Solution, where IOGP continues to offer a secured environment for developing draft standards. The “IOGP supplementary procedure for development and maintenance of ISO standards has been revised in response to the 2017 letter of ISO/TMB TF “Challenges in the oil and gas sector” in which they endorse the way of working together with IOGP.
