Purpose: The standards module of the FCHO ( presents a large number of standards relevant for the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells. The standards are categorized per application, enhancing ease of access and findability. The development of sector-relevant standards facilitate and enhance economies of scale, interoperability, comparability, safety, and many other issues. Scope: This report presents the developments in European and international standards for the year 2021 and the start of 2022. Standards from the following standards developing organizations are included: CEN, CENELEC, ISO, IEC, OIML. Key Findings: The development of sector relevant standards on an international level continued to grow in 2022; on a European level many standards are still in the process of being drafted. In 2021 & 2022 11 new standards have been published, on the subject of fuel cell technologies and safety and measurement protocols of hydrogen technologies. The recently established committee CEN-CLC JTC 6 (Hydrogen in energy systems) has not published standards yet, but is working on drafting standards on, for example, Guarantees of Origin. In the upcoming years multiple standards will be replaced, such as the ISO 12619 1-12 set of standards affecting 40% of all collected standards.
