Of the alternative fuel choices available, none plays a more strategic role than natural gas in having a major positive impact on the environment and the economy. In fact, most energy outlooks see huge growth in the use of natural gas for transportation vehicles.
Regulatory standards in the natural gas market provide the assurance that components and systems used on board natural gas vehicles as well as at the fueling station have been independently scrutinized and monitored in their intended area of application and have met pre-defined criteria for safe use and performance.

"There is always a risk in using untested, unvalidated components in an NGV application. You face safety concerns as to whether the component can handle the pressure extremes and temperature variations. The biggest risk of using uncertified components is leakage. If you use a component that has not gone through the rigors of certification, you will not have the assessment that the component will not leak and become a safety hazard."
