Hydrogen energy as the cleanest fuel to replace gasoline has been accepted by society, hydrogen fuel could be promoted based on the safety of hydrogen-fuel storage containers. For risk-controlling of hydrogen storage containers, there are many laws and regulations in UN and EU set the strict technical requirements on high pressure hydrogen storage systems and require a lot of rigorous experimental verification should be performed before mass production. Frame of GTR No.13, ECER No.134 and EU No406/2010 and the content relevant with high-pressure hydrogen storage container would be discussed emphatically in this paper. Rigorous testing methods in regulations and standards are compared and comments on hydrogen storage container performance testing are provided, besides, some important testing items are discussed.
