GAS Analysis 2019 will be organised by NEN and ISO/TC 158 “Analysis of gases”. The organisation is supported by an Organisation Committee and a Scientific Committee consisting of experienced persons covering the various fields of gas analysis. The Organisation Committee is involved in the overall organisation of GAS Analysis event whereas the Scientific Committee is responsible for the symposium programme and poster session by evaluating the abstracts submitted and compiling the symposium programme.
The Organisation Committee consists of the following members:
The Scientific Committee is currently under establishment.
NEN, the Netherlands Standardization Institute, is legally set up as a private non-for-profit organizsation that was founded in 1916. NEN is the Dutch knowledge centre for standards and rules and is the official institute in the Netherlands for publishing standards. As such, NEN represents the Netherlands as member in international and European standardisation organisations (ISO and IEC, and CEN and CENELEC, respectively). NEN has broad experience in holding the secretariat of international and European technical committees and working groups that are active in specifying products, processes, systems, test methods or certification. Over the years, NEN has managed and participated in research, trade support and twinning projects, and inter-laboratory studies. Many of these activities concern application of standards and building of national harmonisation and implementation of technical legislation. These projects have been executed in relation to law definition, metrological institutionalisation, certification bodies, accreditation authorities and lab or product assessment.
ISO/TC 158 is the technical committee under ISO, the international organisation for standardisation, involved in the analysis of gases. Effectively, it prepares written standards as tools. These allow controlled preparation of calibration gases and gas mixtures by metrological institutes and (calibration) gas suppliers. This is an on-going process, as the technical possibilities and the market needs increase in time. More information can be obtained from the ISO/TC 158 website. Of course, you can also contact the ISO/TC 158 Secretariat if you would like to receive more information. Revenues of GAS Analysis 2019 will be used to support the international secretariat of ISO/TC 158.
