Type of Standards


This standard specifies requirements for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U) pipes and injection-moulded fittings that are intended for above-ground and below-ground pressure applications for the conveyance of potable water in reticulation systems and for the other applications in which continuous temperatures in excess of 25 ºC are not encountered. Minimum wall thicknesses are given, based on a design stress rating of 10 MPa for pipes of nominal outside diameter 90 mm or less and 12.5 MPa for pipes of nominal outside diameter 110 mm and more. Seven classes of pipes and three classes of pipe fittings for reticulation systems are covered.

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.
