• ISA Standards & Practices Department announces 2017 award recipients

    ISA's Standards & Practices (S&P) Department annually publishes 10-15 new or revised standards and technical reports that improve the safety, cybersecurity, and efficiency of industrial processes. Each year the department's governing body, the ISA S&P Board, selects and presents department-level awards in recognition of outstanding efforts that have resulted in ISA standards, recommended practices, or technical reports, or in other significant outcomes for an ISA standards committee.

    For 2017, 27 individuals were announced as award recipients by Maurice Wilkins, Ph.D., 2017-18 Vice President of ISA's S&P Department, for their excellence in standards development. (Note that photos were not available for all award recipients.)
