TMV 2 & 3 - Approval Procedure
We test against a range of industry standards for the assessment of mechanical, health and hygiene requirements for water products sold into the United Kingdom.
The NSF REG4 certification scheme provides an alternative to water fittings compliance for the UK. Certification to this scheme is valuable for manufacturers looking to prove compliance with Regulation 4, a section in these UK regulations:
This scheme covers mechanical products with drinking water contact such as valves, backflow prevention devices, taps, mixers, shower heads, pipes and fittings, tanks, cisterns, water meters and many others. NSF REG4 approval also includes non-metallic products such as rubbers, coatings, cements, resins and sealants.
We offer testing services needed to comply with the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) for products in contact with drinking water. After our testing is complete, we send the test reports to the WRAS agency, which will provide the approval.
NSF tests products for compliance to BS 6920, a British standard that ensures the suitability of non-metallic products for use in contact with water intended for human consumption.
Our lab in South Wales is one of the largest specialized test laboratories for water fittings.
