March 07, 2022 to March 18, 2022
API Virtual Event
Due to the continuing circumstances caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and after much thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the evolving situation, we regret to advise that we decided to move the 2022 Spring Committee on Petroleum Standards Meeting to a fully virtual format.
These virtual meetings will be held over a two-week period, March 7-11, 2022, and March 14-18, 2022.
We hope that this change in the meeting format will not present too much of a challenge for you. We value your support and expertise and are certainly looking forward to your participation virtually.
The development of consensus standards is one of API’s oldest and most successful programs. It covers about 550 standards for all segments of the oil and natural gas industry. The breadth of this vital program is an important indication of the varied industry contacts that attendees can make during the sessions and networking opportunities.
The Committee on Petroleum Measurement Standards Meeting remains an invaluable opportunity to be a part of how the U.S. petroleum industry develops and maintains state-of-the-art standards. With that in mind, we will host COPM as a hybrid event this Spring.
To ensure that the meetings are open to all who may have a “direct and material interest in the subject of the standard”, we have added virtual participation as a registration option with a registration fee to support the virtual meeting capabilities. This is in accord with our ANSI accredited Procedures for Standards Development, which state the following regarding openness and meeting procedures, emphasis added:
5.2 Due Process
