6.2 Initial type testing 6.2.1 General Relevant type tests shall be carried out on new products and whenever there is a change in design, in material and/or in production method, other than routine in-process adjustment and extension of the product range (see Table 3). A change of supplier of a material or stabiliser does not lead to a change in performance if the chemical composition remains the same. Material modifications within certain limits are not considered as a change of material. Guidance for these limits can be found in the standards given in Annex B. For tests previously performed in accordance with the provisions of the standards listed in Annex A, or the recognized European specification, as applicable, (same product, same characteristic(s), same test method, same system of attestation etc.) the results may be taken into account. All characteristics given in Clause 4 shall be subject to calculation and/or initial type testing, except 4.6.2 where the characteristics of the components used have already been determined by the component manufacturer on the basis of conformity with other product standards. However this does not relieve the manufacturer of the piping system from the responsibility of ensuring that the system conforms to the requirements of this document. 6.2.2 Initial type test requirements The initial type testing of the characteristics according to Clause 4 shall be performed in accordance with the sampling procedure given under type tests (TT) of the applicable product specific standards for assessment of conformity as given in Annex B. If the standard does not contain one or more of the characteristics, then testing as given in Table 3 shall apply. For products where no such standard exists Table 3 shall apply.

Test reports shall be kept by the manufacturer for at least 10 years after discontinuation of the product. 6.3 Factory production control 6.3.1 General The manufacturer shall establish, document and maintain an FPC system to ensure that the products placed on the market conform to the stated performance characteristics. The FPC system shall consist of procedures, regular inspections and tests and/or assessments and the use of the results to control raw and other incoming materials or components, equipment, the production process and the product. If the manufacturer has the component designed, manufactured, assembled, packed, processed and labelled by subcontracting, FPC of the original manufacturer may be taken into account. However, where subcontracting takes place, the manufacturer shall retain the overall control of the component and ensure that he receives all the information that is necessary to fulfil his responsibilities according to this European Standard.
