CGA’s Growing Library of Hydrogen Safety Publications

When it comes to hydrogen, the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has been developing related standards for more than half a century – we published our first hydrogen safety standard in 1955.

The standards we develop are incorporated by regulators, industrial engineers, designers, and zoning bodies at the federal, state, and provincial level. We’re ANSI accredited. And while we’ve historically focused on the U.S. and Canada, we have also long worked with ISO and the UN to create model regulations and harmonize standards across borders in this increasingly connected world.

The following CGA safety publications focus on hydrogen, with additional standards in development.

Under Development

  • delivery of hydrogen to near-consumer use points; 
  • noise from hydrogen venting and system operation; 
  • small scale hydrogen production and delivery; 
  • material suitability for hydrogen service; 
  • reciprocating cryogenic pumps and pump installations for hydrogen and liquefied natural gas; and
  • updates to the emergency response guidelines for hydrogen.
