The 2021 Fall Committee on Petroleum Measurement Standards Meeting (COPM) will be held as a hybrid meeting, October 18-22, 2021, in Nashville, Tennessee. It will be open to anyone who wishes to participate.

Reason for Attending

The Committee on Petroleum Measurement Standards Meeting remains an invaluable opportunity to be a part of how the U.S. petroleum industry develops and maintains state-of-the-art standards. With that in mind, we will host COPM as a hybrid event this Fall.

To ensure that the meetings are open to all who may have a “direct and material interest in the subject of the standard”, we have added virtual participation as a registration option with a registration fee to support the virtual meeting capabilities. This is in accord with our ANSI accredited Procedures for Standards Development, which state the following regarding openness and meeting procedures, emphasis added:

    5.2 Due Process
    5.2.1 Openness
    Participation in API standards activities is open to all parties (persons and organizations) that have a direct and material interest in the subject of a standard.

    5.2.2 Balance Overview

    API seeks broad input to its standardization activities including the participation of all parties representing interest categories appropriate to the nature of the standard and allows for open attendance at standards meetings.

    5.10 Standards Meeting Procedures
    5.10.1 General

    Committees dealing with standards activities shall meet as needed to conduct their work. Except for those portions of meetings dealing with policy and/or budget issues, standards meetings are open to all interested parties.
Benefits of Participation:
  • Gain access to technical committee meetings covering API standards and best practices used throughout the industry to promote safe and environmentally sound operations.
  • Learn about the latest research and development on measurement techniques and equipment, including future R&D efforts that may benefit your business in the long run.
  • Network with colleagues and establish new business connections.
  • Connect with exhibitors to learn about products, services, and technologies that may be important to your company.
  • Qualify for the chance to win one of two complimentary registrations to the 2022 Spring COPM Meetings during the two networking breaks on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
  • Earn Professional Development Hours (PDH) to maintain professional certifications.

Virtual attendees will have the same access to meetings, sponsor and exhibitor information, colleagues through the event platform, and will still have a chance to qualify for the complimentary registrations through an in-app game.
