Test gases - Test pressures - Appliance categories

This standard specifies the test gases, test pressures and categories of appliances relative to use of combustible gases of the first, second and third families. It serves as a reference document in the specific standards for appliances that fall within the scope of the Council Directive on the approximation of the laws of Member States concerning gas appliances.
The standard makes recommendations for the use of the gases and pressures to be applied for the tests. The full procedure will be given the corresponding appliance standards.
NOTE The test gases and the test pressures specified in this standard are in principle intended to be used with all the appliances in order to establish conformity with the corresponding standards.

This draft amendment is submitted to CEN members for enquiry. It has been drawn up by the Technical Committee CEN/TC 238.

This draft amendment A1, if approved, will modify the European Standard EN 437:2003. If this draft becomes an amendment, CEN

members are bound to comply with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for inclusion of this amendment

into the relevant national standard without any alteration.

This draft amendment was established by CEN in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other language made

by translation under the responsibility of a CEN member into its own language and notified to the CEN Management Centre has the same

status as the official versions.

Foreword

This document (EN 437:2003/prA1:2007) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 238 “Test gases,

test pressures and categories of appliances”, the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR.

This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European

Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).
In Foreword of EN 437
Replace the four last paragraphs by the following ones:

This standard can be considered as an important stage in the harmonization of test gases, test pressures and

appliance categories and the quality of information on gas usage in Europe.

The standard also applies to Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia and Turkey, countries whose

national body is affiliate member of CEN (see annex D).
