New Pipeline Interference Standard being Chaired by Ken Lax

Ken Lax (Technical Director) will be chairing the ISO Technical Committee 67 Sub Committee 2 Working Group 24 (TC67 SC2 WG24) committee drafting the new ISO stray current standard at BSI offices in London from 15 to 17 August 2017.

The new standard will cover all aspects of electrical interference on pipelines.

This new standard will be ISO 21857 and will include the effects of space weather (tellurics), varying DC from traction systems, steady state DC from CP systems, and induced AC.

Induced AC is already covered in detail in another ISO standard and this new standard will provide an introduction and some additional information on AC corrosion.

Delegates from more than 15 countries will participate in the drafting process.
