    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives production pressure testing requirements and describes tests to confirm pressure-containing capability of the shell of a valve under pressure, and tests verifying the degree of tightness and pressure-retaining capability of the valve seat(s) and/or closure mechanism. Where requirements in a valve product standard differ from those in this standard then requirements of product standard apply.
