Description

The BS 6920 series of standards have been developed to protect the UK population from non-metallic products that come into contact with drinking water, including their effect on flavour, odour and microbial growth. They help ensure that both UK legislation (Water Supply Regulations) and European legislation (Drinking Water Directive) are met.

Section 2.1 describes the preparation of test samples of all types of non-metallic (including cementitious) materials and products, including water fittings and components, pipes and materials used in coating, protection, lining, jointing, sealing and lubrication, for their suitability for use in contact with water intended for human consumption, with regard to their effect on water quality.

It does not cover metallic materials and products, unless used in conjunction with a non-metallic material, e.g. a coating.

NOTE National authorities or regulators might require specific additional testing on extracts from certain types of materials; interpretation of these results is the responsibility of the requesting body.
