The paper briefly gives a summary of standard developments on fiber-reinforced plastic pressure vessels home and abroad. The management and basic technical requirements of FRP vessels are presented in the latest edition Chinese code Supervision Regulation on Safety Technology for Stationary Pressure Vessel (TSG 21-2016). Primary contents of China National Standard General Requirements of Fiber Reinforced Plastics Pressure Vessel (draft standard for approval) are introduced. Comparisons and investigations on FRP are conducted based on difference between China National Standard and ASME BPV CODE X -2015 Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Pressure Vessels, focusing on application scope, design qualification, procedure qualification, inspection and so on. The research will lay a solid foundation for Chinese development in the FRP fields in the future.
