Overview of the DOE Hydrogen Safety, Codes and Standards Program Part 1- Regulations, Codes and Standards (RCS) for Hydrogen Technologies - An Historical Overview


RCS for hydrogen technologies were first developed approximately sixty years ago when hydrogen was being sold as an industrial commodity. The advent of new hydrogen technologies, such as Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) created a need for new RCS. These RCS have been developed with extensive support from the US DOE. These new hydrogen technologies are approaching commercial deployment and this process will produce information on RCS field performance that will create more robust RCS.
