It covers all constituents which are extractable by water from a finished pipe, fitting or joint. It provides for a change in procedure as necessary depending upon the size of the pipe, fitting or joint. NOTE 1 It is assumed that the referring standards or regulations making reference to this standard include the following information (see also the note to clause 4): a) choice of test liquid(s) (see 5.3); b) choice of test temperature(s) (see clause 6). NOTE 2 The pre-treatment procedures, test liquids and test temperatures mentioned in this standard cover the present situation. When new and/or different conditions are formulated (currently under discussion) the standard will be amended accordingly.
