    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes requirements for vitrified clay pipes and fittings with or without sockets, for the construction of drainage and sewerage systems, operated as gravity pipelines, or use as ducts. Surface water and perforated pipes also covered. Applies to both glazed and unglazed products. Covers certain dimensions and tolerances, physical and performance characteristics, marking and sampling, and testing and inspection procedures to verify compliance.
