ISA's Standards and Practices 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, presents department-level awards in recognition of outstanding efforts that have resulted in these documents or in other significant outcomes for an ISA standards committee.
