We Recommend

Published by: The Energy Institute / 03/01/2013 / 71st Edition
IP Standard test methods (STM) is an essential part of any quality control regime for petroleum testing laboratories. A necessary tool for the national and international testing of petroleum and petroleum products, the 2013 version of IP Standard Test Methods also enables laboratories to provide evidence of compliance with the most up to date test methods during inspections.

Updates for the 2013 edition include:
