The ISA-92.00.01 (Toxic Gas Performance) has been approved by the committee, S&P Board and ANSI. The document has now formally replaced the other ISA-92.xx.01 Toxic Gas Performance Standards (except ISA-92.04.01, Oxygen Gas Performance). A committee member has requested consideration for addressing other gases (e.g. HF) since the existing ISA-92.00.01 Annex A Table only includes 11 toxic gases and the scope states intent to cover detection of all toxic gases. A response has been provided within the meeting minutes.
The ISA-92.00.02 (Toxic Gas Detection Installation & Maintenance), Edition 2, Draft 2 document was submitted for ballot and comment to ISA92. The collated comments were discussed during the meeting and the document will be submitted for a re-ballot to ISA92. The document is intended to replace the other ISA-92.xx.02 Toxic Gas Performance Installation & Maintenance (except ISA-92.04.02, Oxygen Gas Installation & Maintenance).
The ISA-TR92.00.03 (Toxic Gas Detection as a Method of Personnel Protection) document was discussed and further development work is necessary prior to ballot by the committee.
The ISA-92.00.04 (Toxic Open Path Equipment Gas Performance) Draft 5 document was submitted for ballot and comment to ISA92. The collated comments were discussed during the meeting and the document will be submitted for a re-ballot to ISA92.
