National Working Group for ISO/TC 229 & IEC/TC 113 Nanotechnology
The ISO/TC 229 & IEC/TC 113 has been defined to cover the standardisation in the field of nanotechnologies, with focus on classification, terminology and nomenclature, basic metrology, characterization, including calibration and certification, risk and environmental issues. The methods of test are to include those for determining the physical, chemical, structural and biological properties of materials or devices for which the performance is critically dependent on one or more dimensions of <100 nm in the chosen application. Test methods for applications, and product standards are also covered within the scope of the TC.

Scope of the National Working Group for ISO/TC 229 & IEC/TC 113 Nanotechnology which mirrors ISO TC 229 and IEC TC 113:

  • Participate in the activities of the ISO/TC 229 & IEC/TC 113
  • Review and provide inputs on the standardization documents developed by the ISO/TC 229 & IEC/TC 113
 
 

Working Group for Pipeline Service Corridor
The companies on Jurong Island are linked to another via a network of pipelines known as "Pipeline Service Corridor". These pipelines serve as vital arteries to supply feedstocks and products from one plant to another. This linked cluster design and concept covered in the Singapore Standard - SS512 Code of practice for the design, construction and operation of pipeline service corridors is essential for the success of Singapore as a chemical hub which provide the competitive edge and promotes the sustainability of chemical industry. The objective of the Working Group for Pipeline Service Corridor is to review the SS 512 to ensure that this standard stays relevant to the industry trend.

 
 

Technical Committee for Plastics and Rubber
Scope of the Technical Committee for Plastics and Rubber:

  • Review and develop standards relating to plastics and rubber pertaining to product specification and test methods
  • Monitoring ISO/TC 45 Rubber and rubber products and ISO/TC 61 Plastics
 
 

Working Group for ISO/TC 201 Surface Chemical Analysis
The ISO/TC 201 Surface Chemical Analysis covers the standardization in the field of surface chemical analysis. Surface chemical analysis includes analytical techniques in which beams of electrons, ions, neutral atoms or molecules, or photons are incident on the specimen material and scattered or emitted electrons, ions, neutral atoms or molecules, or photons are detected. It also includes techniques in which probes are scanned over the surface and surface-related signals are detected.
