BS EN 1349 Industrial process control valves - 5 Year Systematic Review

What is it?:

This European Standard applies to all industrial process control valves (hereafter referred to as control valves). This European Standard specifies the design and performance requirements including material, pressure/temperature ratings, dimensions, testing and marking. The range of nominal size is: DN10 to DN1200. The range of pressure designations is PN10 to PN400, Class 150 to Class 4500

Why is it important?:

It is important that this standard reflects manufacturers and users requirements. This standard is a harmonised standard. The Annex ZA may need revision if EN16668 becomes a harmonised standard. This could affect your Declaration of Conformity and how you CE mark your control valve products if you are a current user of this standard.

Supersedes: Will potentially update the 2009 standard.
