New UK petrol tanker standards coming

The British Standards Institution (BSI) has asked the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) for help in finding tanker industry experts, according to CV Transport News Brief.

BSI is a member of The Comité Européen de Normalisation (CEN), or European standards committee. CEN plans to revise EN13094, the standard that governs the manufacture of petrol tankers.

“We’re helping set up a panel of experts from the industry,” said a senior technical manager at the SMMT. “This is an important opportunity to help frame these standards and we’re keen to see that our members and the industry are properly represented.”
