This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by June 2017, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by June 2017. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document supersedes EN 13618:2011. EN 13618:2016 includes the following significant technical changes with respect to EN 13618:2011: a) the stress corrosion testing is carried out with ammonium only; b) requirement ad test method for resistance of seat of female fitting are deleted; c) in Table 8, specific minimum flow rates and minimum bore diameters are left open; d) for testing the pressure jumps resistance, detailed specification for DN and applied test pressure are given; e) new test methods for corrosion resistance and UV resistance are introduced; f) in Table A.2, the dimensions C are reduced; g) in hydraulic performance and durability test, the number of impulses is reduced; h) the recommended surveillance testing of specific functional requirements is introduced. According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
