Piping systems

Piping systems transport drinking water and waste water. The components of these systems must demonstrate compliance to national and international performance standards before they can be placed on the market. These standards cover many aspects, including leak prevention, product life time and hygiene.

Kiwa has a proven track record in helping manufacturers and suppliers of piping systems meet the appropriate regulations both in Europe and beyond. Our extensive portfolio covers product approvals and testing for metal, plastic, concrete and composite pipes and interconnecting fittings such as elbows, tees, crosses, couplings, unions, caps, valves and plugs.
