The International Organization for Standardization

With the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Lerner is a delegate and voting member on six ANSI-accredited hydrogen technologies Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) for:

ISO/TC 58, Gas cylinders
ISO/TC 58/SC 2, Gas fittings
ISO/TC 58/SC 3, Cylinder design
ISO/TC 58/SC 4, Operational requirements for gas cylinders
ISO/TC 197, Hydrogen technologies
ISO/TC 220, Cryogenic vessels

He is also a registered ANSI-accredited U.S. expert on four ISO Working Groups (WGs) in the hydrogen technologies sector:

• ISO/TC 197/WG 5, Gaseous hydrogen land vehicle refueling connection devices.
• ISO/TC 197/WG 22, Gaseous hydrogen fueling station hoses.
• ISO/TC 197/WG 23, Gaseous hydrogen fueling station fittings.
• ISO/TC 197/WG 24, Gaseous hydrogen fueling stations – General requirements.
• ISO/TC 197/WG -Gaseous hydrogen fueling dispensers – General requirements.

These WGs include hydrogen filling station components and their attachments to hydrogen powered vehicles for all participating countries.


The Society of Automotive Engineers

With The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) Lerner is a participant on the Fuel Cell Task Force for Compressed Hydrogen Surface Vehicles (CHSVs).

The Fuel Cell Standards Committee is responsible for establishing standards for vehicle fuel cell systems and its interfaces to the vehicle. Standards will cover the safety aspects of fuel cell systems in the vehicle, test procedures to establish the performance of the system/components, and interface requirements.

SAE J2600 applies to the design and testing of CHSV fueling connectors, nozzles, and receptacles. Connectors, nozzles, and receptacles must meet all SAE J2600 requirements and pass all SAE J2600 testing to be considered as SAE J2600 compliant. This document applies to devices which have Pressure Classes of H11, H25, H35, H50 or H70.

The Task Force is currently working on the harmonization of SAE J2600 and ISO 17268. The harmonization concerns touch temperature limits on vehicle nozzle and hydrogen station handle, etc.

The TAG Chair is the document sponsor for SAE J2601, the only internationally recognized fueling protocol for light duty FCVs.

He is also on the Technical Standards Task Force for Identifying Automated Driving System Dedicated Vehicles (ADS-DVs) User Issues for Persons with Disabilities. Level 4 and 5 ADS-DVs with no longitudinal/lateral controls will eventually enable persons who are otherwise unable to obtain a driver’s license for a conventional vehicle, to travel at will. Namely, persons with visual, physical, and/or cognitive impairments. The purpose of this task force is to gather and develop information on user specific issues to this non-driver population of ADS-DV 's and their occupants. We will be looking at pick up and drop off issues for passengers in wheelchairs. The task force will conduct a literature review, as well as consult with advocates for the blind, disabled, elderly and those with varying forms of ability. We will be producing a Information Report that summarizes potential user issues for this community. The task force will work closely with other SAE Committees on any work products created by this new task force. Inclusive design benefits all users not just those with varying degrees of ability.
