    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    States requirements for PVC pipes and fittings for sewer, drain, waste and vent applications above-ground or below ground and intended to be used where the pipeline is operating under gravity flow and the operating pressure is low.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for PVCU pipes and fittings for sewer, drain, waste and vent applications above-ground or below ground and intended to be used where the pipeline is operating under gravity flow and the operating pressure is low. The Standard includes requirements for both plain and structured wall pipes and fittings.NOTE: Pipes manufactured to this Standard should only be used and installed in accordance with AS 2032, AS/NZS 2566, AS 3500 and NZS 7643.Methods of demonstrating compliance with this Standard are given in Appendix A.
