DK-VAND, More info regarding the new certification provisions

DK-VAND’s steering committee has decided to amend DK-VAND’s certification rules for plastic pipes and associated products of 23.08.2017 in order to try to adapt DK-VAND’s requirements to similar European certification schemes. The steering committee has also decided to issue specific DK-VAND certificates to ensure the traceability to the DK-VAND certified products via the certificate number.

Initially, the new supplementary provisions will apply for INSTA-CERT certified plastic pipes. Later – gradually as the test requirements are ready - fittings and other components used in the water distribution systems will follow.

The supplementary provisions are available on Dancert’s and DK-VAND’s websites:
Dancert's web
DK VAND's web

These provisions are supplementary to Dancert’s General terms and conditions for certification, inspection and approval: link

The new DK-VAND certificates will be issued gradually in the course of 2021 concurrently with the accomplishment of the annual audits at the manufacturing sites.

In addition to the new certificate, the primary amendment is that the annual inspections will be converted into actual audits. During the audits it will be checked that the production management system is able to ensure that the product requirements are met during the certification period.

Moreover, the frequency of sampling/test is changed from once (of all dimension groups) during the certification period of three years to annual tests. Each year products from one specific dimension group will be sampled. In this way, products from all the dimension groups will be tested during the certification period.
