In this webinar, you will learn more about NSF/ANSI 14: Plastics Piping System Components and Related Materials, the American National Standard that establishes minimum physical, performance and health effects requirements for plastic pipes, fittings, valves, materials and ingredients.
This standard, created in 1965, is referenced in many model plumbing codes, including the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC), the International Plumbing Code (IPC) and the National Standard Plumbing Code (NSPC). Many regulatory agencies require certification to NSF/ANSI 14 because it is unique in that it requires both performance and health effects criteria to be met – and it addresses multiple end uses, including potable water, drain waste and vent, electrical conduit, fire sprinklers and more.
In this detailed webinar, NSF regulatory and code expert Jeremy Brown discusses the requirements, background and specifications of this important industry standard. He also discusses some frequently asked questions related to certification, product marking, testing failures and more.
