ISO 21029-2:2015 specifies operational requirements for transportable vacuum insulated cryogenic vessels of not more than 1 000 l volume designed to operate above atmospheric pressure. Appropriate parts may be used as a guidance for a vessel design to operate open to the atmosphere.
For cryogenic vessels designed for personal medical use, other requirements can apply.
The scope includes putting into service, filling, withdrawal, transport within the location, storage, maintenance, periodic inspection, and emergency procedures.
For the transportation of these vessels by public road, rail, sea, and air, other additional requirements can apply; these are defined in specific regulations.
Transportable cryogenic vessels of not more than 1 000 l volume are often partly equipped by the manufacturer, but can be installed or re-installed by another party, such as the operator or owner. For this reason, some of the scope of ISO 21029-2:2015, which includes putting into service, inspection, filling, maintenance, and emergency procedure, overlaps with ISO 21029‑1.
