2016 BFPA Published Standards

15 February, 2017

2016 was another busy year for BFPA’s technical work, with 23 standards being published across many of our fluid power technical committees. The majority of the 2016 publications were revisions to existing standards, but four new standards were published in 2016: two under TC6 Contamination Control related to filters and particulate contamination and two under TC9 Systems and Installation related to symbols and fluid power reference dictionary.

BFPA will continue its key role in standards development for the fluid power industry

09 December, 2016

Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU many questions have been raised. As a trade association with a very high profile reputation within the technical standards arena, BFPA is especially concerned that any future Government policy should support the UK’s ongoing involvement in the setting of those technical standards, because it is against these agreed criteria that most of our trade is conducted. If the UK was excluded from the discussions that determine these standards, the UK fluid power industry could find itself in the position of having to meet standards over which it has had no influence. This issue was high on the agenda at a recent BFPA seminar at which Dr. Scott Steedman, Director of Standards at BSI, was the keynote speaker.
