Fugitive Emissions

Result of the NWIP ballot for the revision of ISO 15848-1:2006 and ISO 15848-2:2006.

• Approval for the addition of ISO/NP 15848-1 and -2 to the ISO/TC 153/SC 1 programme of work;

• Disapproval for the submission of ISO/CD 15848-1 and -2 to DIS vote without comment

The issues under consideration for revision in… ISO 15848-1:2006 “Industrial valves - Measurement, test and qualification procedures for fugitive emissions - Part 1: Classification system and qualification procedures for type testing of valves” are more onerous than those contained in the Part 2: “Production acceptance test of valves”

As such the changes contained in the amendments already proposed have not been accepted for submission of ISO/CD 15848-1 to DIS vote. The result of voting now requires that ISO/NP 15848-1 be subject to a revision process by ISO/TC153/SC1/WG10 (which may take a maximum duration of 36 months).

ISO/NP 15848-2 may be added to ISO/TC153/SC1/ WG10 work programme and as already amended may be submitted to DIS vote without comments.

Many technical comments have been received on ISO 15848-1 and these comments will were to be considered at a meeting of ISO/TC153/SC1/WG10 called for 12/13 September 2012. UK/BVAA delegates attended this meeting.
