As a leader in instrumentation and controls to the power industry, we solicit your participation in the development of the important technical standards that apply to our work. The ISA77 committee members are volunteers who comply with the ISA antitrust policies with the overall objective to draft, comment, and ballot on minimum requirements of various topics for the power industry. Most of our work is accomplished via e-mail and Skype meetings, with perhaps one physical meeting per year in conjunction with the annual Power Industry Symposium.

Involvement as a member of ISA77 will greatly expand your knowledge of industry codes, good engineering practices, and networking through dialog with other power experts in drafting and maintaining these ISA documents. We invite your support and involvement in this important power industry standards development.
