The code of practice covers mains and service lines whose components are prepared for jointing by scraping and/or machining, and gives instructions for the design, storage, handling, transportation, laying conditions and fusion quality control of PE pipes and fittings up to and including 630 mm outside diameter, as well as subsequent joint testing, backfilling, pipe system testing, commissioning and decommissioning. The jointing methods covered by this Technical Specification are heated-tool fusion jointing (butt, socket and saddle fusion), electrofusion jointing and mechanical jointing. No special precautions are necessary for areas exposed to the influence of mining and earthquakes other than those precautions mentioned in this code of practice. Existing and new national regulations take precedence over this Technical Specification.

ISO 17467-3:2012 specifies the physical and mechanical characteristics of fittings made from unplasticized polyamide (PA-U) in accordance with ISO 17467-1, intended to be buried and used for the supply of gaseous fuels for maximum operating pressure up to and including 4 bar. It also specifies the test parameters for the test methods to which it refers. ISO 17467-3:2012 also lays down requirements for dimensions and the marking of fittings. In conjunction with ISO 17467-1 and ISO 17467-2, ISO 17467-3 is applicable to PA-U fittings, their joints and to joints with components of PA-U. These fittings can be of the following types solvent cement socket fittings, solvent cement spigot fittings, and solvent cement saddle fittings.
