About us

Initiated by the Sector Board Petroleum

The READI JIP was originally initiated as the “NORSOK Z-TI project” in 2017 by the Sector Board Petroleum, an entity administrated by Standards Norway, mandated to ensure overall standardization in the industry through coordination of international standardization work in ISO and CEN and the industry standardization work of NORSOK.
