This document specifies the properties of piping system components made from glass-reinforced thermosetting plastics (GRP) based on unsaturated polyester resin (UP). It is suited for all types of water supply, drainage and sewerage with or without pressure. Types of water supply include, but are not limited to, raw water, irrigation, cooling water, potable water, salt water, sea water, penstocks in power plants, processing plants and other water-based applications. This document is applicable to GRP UP piping systems, with flexible or rigid joints with or without end thrust load-bearing capability, primarily intended for use in direct buried installations.
NOTE 1   For the purpose of this document, the term polyester resin (UP) also includes vinyl-ester resins (VE).
NOTE 2   Piping systems conforming to this document can also be used for non-buried applications, provided the influence of the environment and the supports are considered in the design of the pipes, fittings and joints.
NOTE 3   This document can also apply for other installations, such as slip-lining rehabilitation of existing pipes.
NOTE 4   ISO 10467 and ISO 10639, which are replaced by this document, are also referenced in ISO 25780, which specifies requirements for GRP-pipes used for jacking installation.
The requirements for the hydrostatic pressure design of pipes referring to this document meet the requirements of ISO/TS 20656-1 and the general principle for the reliability of structures detailed in ISO 2394 and in EN 1990. These International Standards provide procedures for the harmonization of design practices and address the probability of failure, as well as possible consequences of failures. The design practices are based on a partial safety factor concept, as well as on risk management engineering.
This document is applicable to circular pipes, fittings and their joints of nominal sizes from DN 50 to DN 4000, which are intended to be used for the conveyance of water, sewage and drainage at normal service conditions, with or without pressure.

This document gives guidance for the assessment of conformity of compounds, products, joints and assemblies in accordance with the applicable part(s) of EN 1555 intended to be included in the manufacturer’s quality plan as part of the quality management system and for the establishment of certification procedures.
This document gives recommendations that the quality management system conforms to or is no less stringent than the relevant requirements to EN ISO 9001.
NOTE 1 If certification is involved, the certification and inspection body is preferably compliant with EN ISO/IEC 17065, EN IS0/IEC 17021 or EN ISO/IEC 17020, as applicable.
In conjunction with Parts 1 to 5 of EN 1555 (see Foreword), this document is applicable to polyethylene (PE) plastics piping systems for the supply of gaseous fuels. It is applicable to PE pipes, fittings, and valves, their joints and to joints with components of other materials intended to be used under the following conditions:
a) a maximum operating pressure, MOP, up to and including 10 bar;
b) an operating temperature of 20 °C as reference temperature.
NOTE 2 For other operating temperatures, derating coefficients can be used; see EN 1555-5.
