EN 14528:2015 (E) 3 European foreword This document (EN 14528:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 163 “Sanitary appliances”, the secretariat of which is held by UNI. 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of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by January 2016 and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by April 2017.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 14528:2007. 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 the EU Construction Products Regulation. For relationship with EU Construction Products Regulation, see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document. Since the latest edition of EN 14528 the most significant technical changes are the following: a) introduction of the term “product type”; b) introduction of the clause “Dangerous substances”; c) modification of the marking of products; d) replacement of the clause “Evaluation of conformity” by “Assessment and verification of constancy of performance – AVCP” and replacement of Annex ZA by a new one in accordance with provisions of Regulation 305/2011/EU. 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.

All drawings are examples only, other forms are permissible. NOTE For the purposes of this standard the term ‘domestic purposes‘ includes use in hotels, accommodation for students, hospitals and similar buildings, except when special medical provisions are required. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 35, Pedestal and wall-hung bidets with over-rim supply - Connecting dimensions 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 bidet sanitary appliance for washing the genital area whilst seated Note 1 to entry: See Figures 1 and 2.

NOTE Functional surfaces do not include inlet and outlet holes, outlet grills, etc. 4.4 Protection against overflowing 4.4.1 Bidets with overflow Every bidet shall be protected against overflowing. When tested in accordance with 5.4, the flow rate of the overflow shall not be less than the values given in Table 1. SIST EN 14528:2015

4.4.2 Bidets without overflow A bidet with a non-closable outlet or a floor gully may also be used as a protection against overflowing. In this case the bidet is related to Class CL 00. 4.5 Durability Products conforming to the requirements of 4.2 to 4.4 are deemed to be durable. 5 Test methods 5.1 General All tests shall be carried out on the same sample bidet. Install the bidet to be tested on a firm flat horizontal or vertical surface as appropriate with a layer of mortar or other material to accommodate any unevenness. 5.2 Static load test — The bidet shall be fixed in accordance with the manufacturer's instruction onto a smooth surface with a layer of mortar or other facing material used for pointing between the back of the bidet and the smooth surface. — Gradually apply a force of (4,00 ± 0,1) kN on top of a wooden beam with a cross section of 100 mm × 100 mm positioned across the geometric centre of the bowl of the bidet parallel to the wall (see Figure 3). Allow the force to remain in position for a period of 1 h. — Record any failure to comply with 4.2. Any distortion at the points of direct loading shall not constitute a failure. SIST EN 14528:2015

EN 14528:2015 (E) 8 Imperfections that do not affect the functionality of the surface shall not constitute a failure. 5.4 Determination of flow rate of overflow — The bidet shall be installed horizontally in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. — Close the waste-outlet hole(s). — Introduce the water supply avoiding turbulence by means of a flexible tube with an inner diameter of 20 mm which leads to the bottom of the bowl. Adjust the quantity of water supply in such a way that no water spills over the rim or the tap platform of the bidet, whichever is the lowest. — Read the water flow rate after a steady-state condition has been established for a period of 60 s by means of a flow-meter fitted into the supply pipe. 6 Dangerous substances National regulations on dangerous substances may require verification and declaration on release, and sometimes content, when construction products covered by this standard are placed on those markets. In the absence of European harmonized test methods, verification and declaration on release/content should be done taking into account national provisions in the place of use. NOTE An informative database covering European and national provisions on dangerous substances is available at the Construction website on EUROPA. 7 Marking The intended use of bidets is personal hygiene in accordance with the scope of this standard. NOTE The intended use is also mentioned in Annex ZA, Table ZA.1. The abbreviation “PH” for the intended use personal hygiene might be used for CE marking. A schematic drawing of the product might be used for CE marking. A schematic drawing of the product may optionally follow the abbreviation for personal hygiene. EXAMPLE 1 Use of full text: personal hygiene. EXAMPLE 2 Use of abbreviation: PH. EXAMPLE 3 Use of abbreviation and the optional schematic drawing: PH . Bidets belong always to one class and type at least. For each class and type a set of requirements to be tested (see 8.2.2) is defined. Due to this, a bidet can be described with a designation code which includes all fulfilled essential requirements. The relevant product characteristics and the Essential Characteristics for bidets including their abbreviations are given in Table 2. SIST EN 14528:2015

EN 14528:2015 (E) 9 Table 2 — Characteristics and abbreviations for bidets Abbreviations Characteristics EN 14528 Number of European Standard for bidets for product description CL (X) Class of bidet with an integral overflow providing a flow rate (X) with:

The second line of the designation code can be omitted when those characteristics are fulfilled. EXAMPLE 4 Class 25 bidet, i.e. bidet with an overflow providing a flow rate of 0,25 l/s. All essential characteristics specified for these products in accordance with Annex ZA are satisfied. EN 14528 — CL 25 8 Assessment and verification of constancy of performance – AVCP 8.1 General The compliance of bidets with the requirements of this standard and with the performances declared by the manufacturer in the DoP shall be demonstrated by: — determination of the product type (see 8.2); — factory production control by the manufacturer (FPC), including product assessment (see 8.3). The manufacturer shall always retain the overall control and shall have the necessary means to take responsibility for the conformity of the product with its declared performance(s).
