For more information on similar standards released in the first quarter, see my previous blog on New Industrial Process Measurement and Control Standards for the 1st Quarter 2013.

If Industrial Control is your field, you'll also want to keep up with the standards from ISA, the International Society of Automation.  ISA is the U.S. TAG (Technical Advisory Group) for IEC Committee IEC65, on Industrial Process Measurement, Control and Automation.  ISA sends delegates to participate in the committee meetings and help to draft these IEC International Standards.  And ISA develops similar standards independently.  ISA Standards are provided by Document Center at our webstore,

Count on Document Center to keep you up-to-date with the standards you depend on!
