Downloads

This standard specifies the requirements and test methods for mechanical fittings intended to join plastic pressure piping systems including transition fittings to metal pipes for the following:

a)      supply of water for human consumption (W), including raw water prior to treatment and for the supply of water for general purpose, as well as underground drainage and sewerage under pressure (P);

b)      supply of water for irrigation (I); and

c)      industrial applications (IS).

This standard is applicable only to mechanical fittings with operating-temperature and pressure limits as indicated in the relevant piping systems standards.

This standard is not applicable to flanges and mechanical fittings for hot and cold water systems inside buildings, as well as for district heating applications.

Mechanical Testing of Products containing Nanomaterials - Guidelines

Commenting Period

03/05/2017 - 02/06/2017

Downloads

This standard was formulated to provide guidelines for the industry to measure and verify the mechanical improvement of a product containing nanomaterials. This standard was developed with the objectives to provide the quality requirements and testing methods for products containing nanomaterials, to provide assurance on the functionality of the products containing nanomaterials to ensure consumer protection and health and to support the implementation of certification programme for nanomaterials called NanoVerify. NanoVerify Programme is a voluntary certification programmes for product with claims of nano-enabled or nano-enhanced properties in the range of 1 nm to 100 nm for any one dimension.

Manual for Green Product Scoring System

Commenting Period

 26/04/2017 - 25/05/2017

 

Downloads

 

This standard was developed to provide a systematic and structured assessment system for green products in building and road projects; to measure the number of green products used in building and road works; to educate and create awareness among the stakeholders on green products and services; and to encourage manufacturing industries to apply for green product certification based on the current criteria by independent certification body.

This standard provides guidance to all public and private organisations regardless of sector, size or type, on green scoring of products used in construction of building and road. This standard is prepared to encourage the local construction industry to embark on the use of green products in their construction projects. This standard is also complements the green rating tools currently used in the country.
