Transition Engineering Standards Projects

 

GATE is forming Standards working groups to write and submit ISO standards for the key tools and processes in Transition Engineering. The fundamental aspects of first of these tools have been described in the textbook, Transition Engineering, Building a Sustainable Future (2019). As professional engineers are aware, fundamentals developed by researchers and published in peer-reviewed journals are a part of standards, but it falls to practicing professionals to write, review and vet useful standards. Compliance with standards is the mechanism by which professional engineering effectiveness, reliability and liability are ensured. 

Current ISO Standards Relating to Sustainability 

ISO 37101:2016  Sustainable development in communities — Management system for sustainable development — Requirements with guidance for use

ISO 14031:2021  Environmental management — Environmental performance evaluation — Guidelines

Transition Engineering Standards

Engineers are familiar with the standards in their professions. The GATE standards will be interdisciplinary.
