International Standards for Petroleum, Offshore Oil and Maritime Industries

The purpose of this project is to describe how necessary engineering and technical standards are identified, developed, established and maintained, and to describe the work done by various international trade groups and standards organizations who participate in the various phases of the work.

The final report will be a useful knowledge base for improved understanding on the development and maintenance of standards in the Arctic to prevent potential accidents with subsequent oil pollution from offshore petroleum and maritime activities.
