Lloyd’s Register view on Hydrogen Guidance and Rules

Standardization is one of the other actions that need to be taken on main components like FE connections and storage of hydrogen. During the presentation I’ll give an update on where we are at this stage with rules and guidance for a safe deployment of hydrogen as a fuel.
