This document in two parts, specifies the requirements and test methods in respect to materials, dimensions, function and Factory Production Control for "flexible hose assemblies " or "semi flexible hose assemblies" hose assemblies. The standard is applicable to flexible or semi flexible hose assemblies intended to be used in water systems (according EN 806-2) to connect sanitary tap ware, heaters or similar appliances.
Part 1 considers flexible hose assemblies,
Part 2 considers semi flexible hose assemblies,
both designed for use with water with a maximum static pressure of 10 bar and a temperature of maximum 90°C (see 3.1 definition).
Compliance of a product with the present standard does not confer a presumption of fitness of the product for the transport of water intended for human consumption within the meaning of the Directive 89/106/EEC. However, until the operation of the envisaged European Acceptance Scheme for construction products in contact with water intended for human consumption and the revision of the present standard, products complying with the present standard can be used for the transport of water intended for human consumption if they comply with the relevant national, regional or local regulatory provisions applicable in the place of use.
