5 General

Materials, products and fitness for purpose shall conform to the requirements given in EN 17152-1.

Materials and products shall be produced by the manufacturer under a quality management system

which includes a quality plan.
6 Testing and inspection
6.1 Group
For the purpose of this document, the groups specified below apply:
All products are part of one group.
6.2 Type testing

Type testing is intended to demonstrate the ability of the product to fulfil the intended use and

characteristics detailed in the referring product standard.
Type testing shall be performed as described in Table 1 whenever there is:
a. a new system (N);
b. a change in design (D);
c. a change in material (M);

For the purposes of this document, see 6.2, Table 1, it shall be considered as a change of:

PP compound, if any of the following requirements are not fulfilled:
— EN 17152-1:2019, 5.2.2 for virgin materials;
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
kSIST-TS FprCEN/TS 17152-3:2022
FprCEN/TS 17152-3:2022 (E)
— EN 17152-1:2019, 5.2.3 for materials modified with minerals;
— EN 17152-1:2019, 5.2.4 for non-virgin materials;
— the requirements for PP in EN 17152-1:2019, Table A.1;
PVC-U formulation, if any of the following requirements are not fulfilled:
— EN 17152-1:2019, 5.3.2 for virgin materials;
— EN 17152-1:2019, 5.3.3 for non-virgin materials;
— the requirements for PVC-U in EN 17152-1:2019, Table 1;

d. a change in production processing method (P), other than routine in-process adjustments;

e. an extension of the product range (E).

NOTE 1 As a result of deviation of process verification test (see 6.4) there can be a need to revalidate the Type

testing.

Unless any of the conditions a) to e) above occurs, the type test results remain valid.

A type test may be performed by the manufacturer or outsourced on behalf of the manufacturer.

NOTE 2 If certification is involved, the certification body can request the location of the test.

Type tests shall demonstrate that the products conform to all requirements for the characteristics given

in Table 1, as applicable.
