Title (German)

Kunststoff-Rohrleitungssysteme für die Wasserversorgung und für Entwässerungs- und Abwasserdruckleitungen - Polyethylen (PE) - Teil 5: Gebrauchstauglichkeit des Systems; Deutsche Fassung EN 12201-5:2011


The European Standards of the DIN EN 12201 series specify requirements and test methods for components made from PE, their joints and to joints with pipeline components of other plastics or other materials for use in buried and above ground piping systems for the conveying of water for human consumption, including raw water prior to treatment, drainage and sewerage under pressure, vacuum sewer systems and the transport of wastewater. Part 5 serves as the basis for the assessment of the fitness for purpose of the system consisting of pipes, fittings and joints. The European Standard has been prepared by CEN/TC 155/WG 12 "Pressure systems of polyolefin material for gas supply, water supply and drainage and sewerage" (secretariat: BSI, United Kingdom) under active German collaboration of Joint Subcommittee NA 119-04-06-04 GUA "Kunststoffrohre in der Trinkwasserversorgung - PE-, PP-Wasserversorgung" ("Plastic pipes for drinking water supply - PE-, PP-water supply") of NAW.
