DNV's Business Development & Growth Manager James Steven will be presenting at Hazardex Live on the standards & regulations related to the safe management and use of hydrogen.

With the increased potential for use of hydrogen to decarbonise industries, the demand and its use will need to significantly increase if we are to meet the 2030 and 2050 decarbonisation targets.

Although the use of hydrogen for certain applications may be new, the standards setting on how to deal with managing the hazards from hydrogen use are well defined.

In the session we will explore some of the key standards and approaches for management of safety with hydrogen. In addition, we will look at the some of the main regulatory requirements currently in place in areas such as UK, Europe, USA and Asia.
