Type of Standards


This Botswana Standard specifies the requirements and associated test methods applicable to ductile iron pipes, fittings, accessories and their joints, for the construction of pipelines to convey water (for example, potable water, sewage) with or without pressure and to be installed below or above ground. NOTE In this standard, all pressures are relative pressures, expressed in bars (100 kPa = 1 bar). This standard covers pipes, fittings and accessories cast by any type of foundry process or manufactured by fabrication of cast components, as well as corresponding joints, in a size range extending from DN 40 to DN 2 000, inclusive.
This standard applies to pipes, fittings and accessories which are:
c) manufactured with socketed, flanged, or spigot ends for jointing by means of various types of gaskets which are not within the scope of this standard;
d) normally delivered externally and internally coated; and
e) suitable for fluid temperatures between 0 °C and 50 °C.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
