Dear Control Engineering: "What are the automation standards that you encounter most?"

     The May 2011 Control Engineering Legalities in Automation column asked about the most-encountered automation standards and received some sarcastic and serious responses. Mark Voigtmann shared some of the thoughtful answers then organized replies into categories, noting, "Only by recognizing the type of standard can you understand its legal impact."

     Control Engineering editorial coverage, online and in print, includes standards and their impact. Search atop www.controleng.com to see various articles and references. We even have a blog covering some of ISA88 Batch Control standard as it evolves.

     Legalities and past coverage aside, we'd like to ask you, "What automation standards do you use the most or find most useful and why?" Please reply below and label your reply as most useful, most useful, or both, and explain why. Thanks. (Note that we review and approve each comment, so don't submit the same comment six times; we'll get to it as soon as we can.)
