The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA) is studying the feasibility of a new program to document compliance with specific ISA standards.

Society officials said a standard compliance program would give ISA a new role in determining conformity assessment in addition to the society’s current standards development role.

“Through compliance to ISA standards, users can have greater confidence that both software and hardware products, as well as implementation methods and solutions are helping them achieve the full benefits of automation,” said Ian Verhappen, vice president of ISA Standards and Practices Department. “ISA is inviting input from users, vendors, and government agencies as we collect information on this proposed program.”
