Proposal for amendments to the inspection requirements for polyvinyl chloride pipes (2 page(s), in English; 2 page(s), in Chinese)
With a view to enhancing the performance of unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes, which are currently subject to mandatory inspection, to meeting the needs of consumers, the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) proposes to update the inspection standards CNS 1298 (PVC pipes) and CNS 4053-1 (PVC pipes for water supply) to their current versions, published on 18 February 2017.
PVC pipes are conducted in two schemes, namely Batch-by-Batch Inspection or Registration of Product Certification (Modules II+IV, II+V, or II+VII). To speed up customs clearance, BSMI modifies Batch-by-Batch Inspection to Type Approval Batch Inspection.
