Hot Spot Revisions to FprEN 13547 and FprEN 1983

FprEN 13547 “Industrial valves - Copper alloy ball valves”

FprEN 1983 “Industrial valves - Steel ball valves

Following revisions to both Preliminary Standards approval assessments have been positive, therefore FprEN 13547 will be submitted to Unique Acceptance Procedure (UAP) by mid-February 2013 and FprEN 1983 will be submitted to UAP by the end of January 2013.

In both standards the need for making reference to a document other than those developed by CEN, CENELEC, ETSI, ISO and IEC has been fully justified.

Therefore approval has been given for the normative reference: to ASME B1.20.1 “Pipe threads, general purpose (inch)” and ASME B16.34 “Valves Flanged Threaded and Welding End” to be included in FprEN 13547 “Industrial valves - Copper alloy ball valves” and in FprEN 1983 “Industrial valves - Steel ball valves”
