Abstract: The Fuel Cell TEsting and DIssemination (FCTEDI) project is funded within the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6) of the European Union as a Strategic Support Action. The FCTEDI project is also a recognized project under the International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE). which was established in 2003 to accelerate the transition to a hydrogen economy. FCTEDI is exclusively concerned with the dissemination of results in fuel cell testing, quality assurance and safety of fuel cells within the EU members and IPHE partners. It especially supports efforts on harmonization, benchmarking and validation of test protocols, testing procedures and measurement methodologies to facilitate standardization. It also performs a meta-gap analysis on regulations, codes & standards (RCS) for fuel cells intended for stationary applications. FCTEDI is the natural successor to the FP5-funded Research & Training Network Fuel Cells Testing and Standardization (FCTESTNET) project and the FP6 Specific Targeted Research Project Fuel Cell Systems Testing, Safety & Quality Assurance (FCTESQA). These two previous projects did respectively first developed and subsequently validate testing procedures for fuel cells to overcome barriers of fuel cell deployment. FCTEDI will disseminate results to the International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy and to international organizations such as the International Energy Agency, the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electro-technical Commission.
