Committee News (Most recent first)

August 2012

The voting members of the ISA99 committee have approved a technical report (ISA-62443-0-3) which outlines the result of a gaps analysis of the ISA-62443 work products in response to recent threats.

January 2012

Joe Weiss has been appointed as managing director for the ISA99 committee. Jim Gilsinn has taken over the co-chair role from Bryan Singer.

December 2011

Following the direction given by the Standards and Practices board we have begun the process of relabeling the work products of the committee from the "ISA99-xx.yy" form to "ISA-62443-xx.yy". This change allows for closer alignment with the corresponding IEC standards (IEC 62443-x-y) and applies to the naming of thw ork products only. The committee name remains "ISA99".

October 2011

Balloting for the draft standard:

ISA-62443.03.03 (99.03.03), Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems: System Security Requirements and Security Assurance Levels

closed on October 27, 2011. Thanks to all voting members who submitted a ballot. The ballot passed with 18 approval votes and 5 disapproval votes. More than 500 comments were received during the ballot process. As yet another clear indication of the global interest in the work of ISA99, the draft is currently being circulated to IEC TC65 for voting due in mid-March 2012.

All comments received will be reviewed and responded to by ISA99 Work Group 4, Task Group 2 led by Jeff Potter. This may well lead to further improvements to the draft.


In early 2009 the committee published ANSI/ISA-99.02.01-2009, Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems: Establishing an Industrial Automation and Control Systems Security Program. This standard was approved by ANSI on 13 January 2009.


The committee published its first standard, ANSI/ISA-99.00.01-2007, Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems: Concepts, Terminology and Models, in late 2007. This standard serves as the foundation for all subsequent standards in the ISA99 series. Also in late 2007, ISA99 published an updated version of its technical report, ANSI/ISA-TR99.00.01-2007, Security Technologies for Manufacturing and Control Systems.  This technical report  provides an assessment of cyber security tools, mitigation countermeasures, and technologies that may be applied to industrial automation and control systems regulating and monitoring numerous industries and critical infrastructures.
