In order to stay on top of newly emerging technologies, Italian RINA published The Rules for the Type Approval of Fuel Cell Power Modules.
The Rules are applicable to installations with several different configurations of fuel cell power modules. However, since the fuel cell is a novel technology under continuous development, additional requirements may be called for by RINA on a case-by-case basis depending on the design principles of the fuel cell in question.
The documentation to be submitted and product requirements are listed in the Rules, which entered into force on March 15th 2022.
