Publication series on hazardous substances (PGS)
NEN supervises the development of standards. This demands specific knowledge, such as being able to supervise processes that will ensure that all the stakeholders reach agreement. Other parties also make use of that expertise; for example, NEN has been holding the secretariat of the Publication Series on Hazardous Substances for the Dutch Central Government since 2008. New or renewed publications on natural gas delivery installations for motor vehicles (PGS 25), and cooling systems and heat pumps (PGS 13) were published in 2009. Government industry collaborate in the compilation of the series; which helps to render the publications suitable for practical application and also stimulates timely updating. The Publication series thereby continues to reflect the latest state of affairs in engineering, as a result of which the users and permit issuers are able to effectively anticipate new developments.
In addition to the PGS more documents are freely available in NEN Connect:
